Key Projects is pleased to present Light Conversation an exhibition featuring Lynne Harlow, Henriëtte van 't Hoog, Mary Schiliro, and Douglas Witmer. In conceiving this exhibition, I imagined how artists use light, not as the result of darkness or shadow, but through materials that are luminous in themselves. The four artists here, Lynne Harlow, Henriëtte van 't Hoog, Mary Schiliro and Douglas Witmer all use color that emits light - through the medium of paint on canvas, Mylar, steel or working directly with Plexiglas. There is a sense of wonder in their processes that yield interesting surprises.
Lynne Harlow creates work with as little intervention as possible, enabling the materials inherent qualities, such as light and transparency, to play an essential role. Henriette van’t Hoog’s three-dimensional objects play with your sense of perspective enhanced by the glowing colors hidden on the backs of each piece. Mary Schiliro's luminous painted Mylars with circular cut-outs dialogue with their own rhythmic shadow play. Juxtaposing washy backgrounds with solid painted blocks of color, Douglas Witmer’s surfaces quietly resonate – color and light.
