Beyond the Surface - Works with Light

Sunday, 01 January 1989 00:00 Published in Solo Exhibitions

1989

Interference Gallery, Toronto, Canada.

A collection of wall-based holographic 'drawings', produced over the previous 3-4 years were included in this exhibition as well as works on glass and a site specific light projection.

Installation view with Plane Addition visible at the centre of the image.

8" x 10" reflection holograms with two 5" x 4" (slanted) holographic 'drawings'.

Series of reflection holograms produced between 1988/9

Site-specific corner installation using light from a 35 mm slide projector directed up through a transparent (black) construction to animate line removed from the surface.

The Interference Hologram Gallery was an important supporter of artists working with holography and mounted many solo and group exhibitions to showcase the developing research produced by artists.


Exhibition dates: 17th June - 29th July, 1989.

 

 

Deep Shadows?

Monday, 01 January 2001 20:00 Published in Solo Exhibitions

2001

Gallery 286, London, UK.

This solo exhibition included a site specific installation "Sight Lines" as well as a number of new wall and floor works sown along side pieces from the 1980's and 90's

"Sight Lines" spanned one wall of the gallery space and was made up of 9 rusted metal plates, each containing a small, circular, hologram.  

The plates hang from the gallery ceiling and are each illuminated by one of the spotlights normally used to display reflection holograms on the wall.  In the location were visitors might expect to view holograms, on the wall at eye height,  thin digital photographs of each metal plate are displayed.

The hanging structure prohibits close access to the wall images.

UK Spaces: Holographic drawings, volumes and site specific installation.

Butler Institute of American Art, Beecher Center Wing, Youngstown, Ohio, USA.

Known for its encouragement of art and technology, the Butler Institute of American Art has mounted several solo and group exhibitions of artists who incorporate various aspects of technology within their practice.

Pepper's eleven month show included 13, 10 x 8 inch reflection holograms, produced over the previous 15 years.

A site-specific installation ‘Sight Lines Wall’ was also installed and ran along several meters of the exhibition space in the Butler’s Beecher Wing, part of their Center for Technology in the Arts.


 

‘Sight Lines Wall’ has developed from work first shown in Pepper’s solo exhibition at Gallery 286, London, UK. Here Pepper describes some of the background relating to the London installation.

Because the technology and optical/illusionistic effect of holographic images there is a overwhelming unfamiliarity (when compared to more traditional forms of art). Holograms tend to be framed and hung in straight lines on gallery walls. This method of display offers the viewer a reassuring point of reference (and method of presentation).  Perhaps it makes it easier to engage with,  or 'accept' holography as a viable visual process.

In “Sight Lines” the holograms have been taken off the wall and placed horizontally, just above the floor. Prior to being installed in the gallery the hanging metal surfaces have been allowed to rust, out in the open, arranged in a straight line. There is an ‘environmental’ and physical continuity between each metal surface and the pattern of rusting it has received. Each of the small circular holograms contain images of liquid, the shadows of which exist just above the surface of the glass which holds the holographic emulsion. Like the pattern created by the rust, these shadows could not be predicted. The liquids used on the metal and during the recording of the hologram have ‘drawn’ their own marks over the surfaces.

This reference to ‘drawing’ is a common and reoccurring element in Pepper’s work. The metal sheets are the dimensions of half a sheet of A4 paper, an accessible size found all over Europe. Something people write on, draw on, photocopy on, laser print on. Here the size has been divided along the longest length to produce a shape onto which long lines could be drawn. Each hologram has been chosen to complement the pattern of marks on the rusted metal sheet. They are ‘subdued’. green/brown, red and an integral part of each metal rectangle, not simply surrounded by a ‘frame’ to make them convenient to display.

Divided Line was produced specifically for this solo exhibition at the Highgate Gallery, London, in responce to the coat of arms which occupied the upper back wall of the exhibition space.

This thin white light transmission hologram, supported on each side by incandescent light tubes, was illuminated by three light sources.
