PAINTING WITH LIGHT
The Thinking Image: Holography in the Hands of the Artist. Collins Gallery, Glasgow. Faces appear startled behind glass, as it frozen in time, so vivid that they seem to be trapped within their frames. Tilt your head this way and that, bob up and down and they suddenly come to life and respond; the intense colours vacitlate and the expressions alter. Confronting the exhibits in this show is an eerie and fascinating experience.
The exhibition highlights the work of recent graduates of the celebrated and unique holograph unit at London‘s Royal College otArt, seven otwhom have formed a collective to pursue an aim of gaining public exposure and artistic credibility.
Holography demands ingenious spectator interaction. ‘Unless you move, you won't appreciate the complexity of the work,’ points out Paul Newman, one of the exhibitors. ‘The participation demystifies it, makes art more fun, more playful.‘ Walk towards Graham Runnadine‘s animated pulsed laser system ‘Conversation Piece‘ and the man who laces you will blink, purse his lips, grimace and mouth soundlessly.
The effects are startling and novel but Newman resists any interpretation of holography as mere wizardry or technical trickery. ‘It is a technological medium butwe are trying to engender an aesthetic discussion.’ The seven artists have varied backgrounds— in sculpture, painting, graphics and photography— and each brings an individual approach to the art of holography.
Newman's abstract pieces explore concepts of light, creating patterns
which instigate an energetic interplay of colours. Caius Hawkins has illuminated Miro-esque compositions on film and glass whilst Patrick Boyd and Martin Richardson exploit the 30 potential of holography. Boyd‘s rainbow holograms, ‘When You Wish Upon A Star“, ‘Breakfast’ and ‘Tintoil' have a haunting celestial beauty.
The super-realism of these 30 images works ironically since uor perception of reality is in tact questioned by these shimmering chameleon figures. (Sara Vitliers)
