Circulation of Light features three distinct projection-based works, which meld technology with nature. Crystal Gazers features groupings of cast glass medallions infused with light from a single channel projection cascading from forged metal branches. Fountain is a wall-mounted collection of cast glass “bottles” with projected water spilling from one to the next. Finally, Sleepwalker is a motion-activated video projection offering the viewer the experience of witnessing the budding and then contraction of a single bloom. Read More

Dave Greber

7000-Day Candles, Dave Greber’s third exhibition with the gallery, explores the notions of spirituality, technology and transhumanism, and touches on spiritual folkways celebrated in New Orleans’ history. The installation, vibrant and revelatory, consists of four video monitor-based objects and a Stasseo (stained-glass-video) – a technique the artist developed utilizing multiple projections, painting and 3D elements to realize large, installed-video compositions.

Robert Hannant

"I Don’t Understand" is a digital video installation by multi-media artist Robert Hannant. The single projection made up of multiple videos, each with its own significant soundtrack, symbolizes the fractured environment of a stranger’s mind. Each “window” of this mind laid bare is relatable on some level, forcing viewers to find themselves simultaneously caught in the uncomfortable role of both voyeur and object of scrutiny. The installation invites a personal experience, allowing each viewer to control his/her engagement. Read More

Courtney Egan

Courtney Egan’s projection-based sculptural installations meld nature with technology, delivering an experience that is both pleasing and disconcerting. The ethereal projections – converging on walls, floors and sculptural elements – are inspired by the growing frequency of human exposure to nature via computers or television. Egan creates stunning yet “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” which envelope the viewer in a conversation between memory of the natural world and a new experience with a plant or flower. She explains the fundamental irony of the experience, stating, “We get closer and farther away from the natural world simultaneously when we experience it through a technological lens.” Read More

Still Brothy, Dave Greber’s second exhibition with the gallery, consists of two video installations Stilllives II: Stilllivin' and Brothy City (v.2.0). Spontaneity and chance continue to be integral elements of the artist’s creation process. The works communicate formally with the illusion of depth, a prismatic color palette and the “soothing” cadence of a seaside casino. Read More

David Sullivan

David Sullivan’s animated paintings collapse the macrocosm into the microcosm. They are a collision of the gestural brushstrokes of abstract painting with the realism of 3D computer graphics. In the animations, humidity melts reified objects into states of transition. Refineries become atoms become organs become tumors. Like some will-o-the-wisp along the Mississippi River, seen dimly through the heat, ambiguous objects drip in a slowly evolving lightshow. Chemical reactions, in time and space, of molecules and Spanish moss glow over petrochemical plants. The industrial plants, their emissions and affected organs dissolve into one. Read More

Dave Greber

Dave Greber believes that the conscious exploration of our own personal cosmic DNA through art unearths all sorts of seemingly unassociated pieces of ideas. He feels that making new work is an archeology of the sub-conscious—it turns up fragments of broken ceramics and jaw bones, and the scientist receives the gifts the soil has offered and pieces them together to discover a “new dinosaur.” Read More

John Pilson

John Pilson lives and works in New York. His film, video and photographic work humorously point to the unexpected while exploring social mores. Pilson has exhibited internationally including exhibitions at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Venice Biennale. Read More
