Using gallery lights to externally light your art pieces is so old-school, thanks to artist Clint Baclawski.
Baclawski’s exhibit titled Lush, currently at the University Art Gallery in the Dexter Building at Cal Poly until Dec. 4, has photos emanate light from within, giving them a substance that is normally associated with sculpture.
The exhibit will feature 64 panels of 128 LED bulbs and 128 linear feet of images, which were photographed near Boston and feature blades of grass on a soccer field. The entire image captures the length of the field; corner post to corner post. Within the room, visitors will see a full range of color variants, including the lushest greens and the bluest of blue skies, ending in negative colors—purple and yellow with a full black-and-white transition in between.
The University Art Gallery is free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
