Against the Dying of the Light: Lightscapes work by Lila Rose Kole
On display at Hartshorn Studio at 2342 Professor
“Against the Dying of the Light” selects from my current explorations into the quality of light; light as insight, as impression, as raw experience. I question what happens between extreme shifts in light—the vacillations important in every visual conflict. Fleeting, illuminated moments steer my work; they motivate me to capture and recapitulate a sense of place in light.
I collect illuminations like treasures; various in nature like the sky at dusk. The work in this exhibit is my earliest attempt to inhabit the play of atmospheric light and spatial orientation. I investigate, abstractly, the challenge of color interplay, the (dis)tension of value and luminosity, and the discovery of context.
Works can be viewed through the month during regular business hours…
