Lights of the Contemporary World - DUBRASKA Lima

This gallery would contain pieces of modern arts that have been made using neon colors and lighting elements. This technique is called Light Art and consist in the creation of a sculpture or painting in which light elements could be part of the piece or even represented the entire exhibition.

The way the artist positioned the lights in this composition gives the sense of balance. The artist Eric Michel, placed vertical lighted pieces of glass represented by primary colors forming a perfect Triadic scheme crossed by the fluorescent tube seemed to be turned off. This installation at the Borusan Contemporary Museum is the perfect representation of modern art and uses of lighting art.
Free fall is definitely one of the smartest uses of light in the art exhibition. The artist achieved different principles of design as movement, emphasis and proportion, as well as formal elements of art, shape and color. And with that, create a simple design, but with a wide meaning for the visitors.
Trix and Robert Haussmann, transformed a common element of the human routine to create a piece of art. The chair designed in 1967 showcases the uses of fluorescent bulbs to exaggerate the elevation of the chair to emphasize the importance of it, making uses of one of the universal principles of design (emphasis).
This lighted library is a structure created with 21 books, positioned through three shelves to create a colorful composition. The variety of light values and dark values is what makes this art more appealing, and at the same times, the space and repetition of shapes are a complement of this contemporary art exhibition.
With this installation, the artist accomplishes to give the sense of deepness by contrasting two of the formal elements of art, color and space. The location of lighted figures through the wall, and the reflection of these in the floor (because of the darkness in the room) makes the viewers feel themselves in a scene of a night in a cosmopolitan city.
With changes of the lights' value and the creation of shadows in this installation, creates the depths desired by the artist. The balance is a consequence of the proper use of symmetry and reflection which can be seen which both (left and right) sides of the exhibition. The image used here is blue, however, the real scenario of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, TX, is an always-changing exhibition that includes purple and red as part of the colors.
Bulbs have traditionally symbolized the human intelligence in different cultures. With this composition, the artist embrace that meaning, matched by the image of a person walking in the distance. Moreover, color, space, repetition and profundity are elements that make this a totally complex work, with a variety of meanings for the visitor.
The light in this piece is an important characteristic that gives more significance to the entire exhibition. Elements as repetition, proportion, space and shape are united here to create this work of art that showcases historical moments through images. The images and lights are perfectly positioned to achieve the exact same shadows and because of that, even though there are different images, we see the art wall as one piece.
In a canvas of 200.00 x 200.00cm the artist demonstrated the abstract art united to lighting art. Repetition as one of the universal principles of the design included in this piece, and lines as a formal element of art, both are the major characteristic of the artwork, while the colors are a big complement of it.
Out of bright tubes, the artist Huang Pei-Ying filled a ceiling with mobile sculptures using just one color but with different abstract figures. Movement is the essential element of design in this composition, as well as rhythm. As elements of design, we can mention the four of them, definitely, texture, color, shape, space and line. All beautifully integrated.
