New Art Exchange Open 2022

Light Wedge, 2018 – present
Two glass holographic plates (drawings), physical wooden wedge.

We intrinsically ‘understand’ how drawings in our world function.  They are stable and attached to their picture plane.  What happens when that drawing is moved off the surface, and what does it become? It is neither a drawing, a photograph, or physical object.

In Light Wedge, a ‘drawn’ representation of a wooden wedge occupies a ‘place’ between the glass ‘picture’ surface and the observer. The light in the holograms is from 2018, when the drawings were recorded. Light from the physical wedge is from 2022 (or whenever the installation is viewed).


Light Wedge was selected from over 300 entries for inclusion in the 2022 New Art Exchange Open exhibition.
