Come and visit our new exhibition!
Miranda Smith’s first solo exhibition ‘Lucent Nebulous’ is a celebration of our innate relationship with light and colour. This exhibition takes inspiration from the way your eyes and brain constantly adjust to changing light conditions and = mediate visual information. During the day, viewers are invited to experience a series of prints that capture a nebulous of colour created by light and preserved in ink.
At night, the gallery space transforms to showcase the experiential light installations that are the basis of the prints, giving viewers the opportunity to interact with the works. The more immersed you become with these installations, the more that they reveal themselves to you. With time, your eye adapts to light conditions and you are more easily able to perceive the soft colour variations and shapes encapsulated in the light. The printed works emphasis elements of the light installations that the human eye cannot distinguish, offering an alternative perspective on our relationship to light and its colours.
Australian and Hong Kong based Artist Miranda Smith paints with light. Her works explore our innate relationship with colour and light, and how our visual fallacies can be used to create heightened experiences.
Brief Explanation of the works
Through subtle coloured light installations these works form situations in which our perceptual fallacies are used to create heightened experiences.These pieces encourage the viewer to become acutely aware of their visual process, as they interact with the soft abstract colours being cast on to the surrounding spaces.The longer that a person spends in the installation, the more their eyes will adjust to the light conditions and more of the slight variations in colour,intensity and ambient light will be revealed to the viewer.Over time the stationary pieces may appear to have changed, encouraging introspection over how we interact with the world around us, ourselves,and our meaningful relationship with colour.
