Exhibition: Phosphor-Obscura | 5.20.2016 | 5-9pm | Welmont | Savannah, GA

Phosphor-Obscura

Welmont is pleased to announce Phosphor-Obscura, an exhibition by Kristen Phipps and Erica Luedtke on Friday, May 20th, 2016. The opening reception is Friday, May 20th from 5pm-9pm. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition is a body of work from Kristen Phipps and Erica Luedtke that relates ideas of time and color vibrancy with visual depth and familiarity. Phipps’ work integrates camera obscura techniques to explore the darker undertones of deterioration and projection.  Memories become about past and future; a chromatic wasteland of uncertainty. Luedtke’s work explores the formal qualities of paint and color luminosity while questioning the relationship between the figure and ground. This exhibition encourages viewers to contemplate themes such as life and death, and to be open to transformation.
