Cris Worley Fine Arts is pleased to announce our fourth solo-exhibition with Adela Andea: Norðurljós, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, May 11, from 5-8 p.m. The artist will be in attendance from Houston, Texas. The exhibition will feature new standing and wall-mounted works in an immersive installation and will be on view through June 15, 2019.
The exhibition title Norðurljós is the Icelandic term for northern lights, also known as an aurora borealis. The luminous effects observed in auroras over the earth’s polar regions happen when charged particles carried by solar wind collide and decay in the atmosphere. This unique natural phenomena—akin to an immense lightning storm—observed over the globe’s icy and remote landscapes points to the essential influence of the environment and climate on culture and technology. As explained by the artist, “The winter puts people into another state of mind that throughout history gives rise to myths, stories, and fantastical creatures. The light or lack of light affects the function of human life.”
Andea is known for all-encompassing light installations designed with electrical components and found objects such as flex neon, LED’s, fluorescent cathode tubes, water-cooling systems, CPU fans, plexiglass, and an assortment of plastics. Appearing as glowing neural networks, individual sculptures display a wild assortment of color, sound, and texture that hold the potential to defy geologic time in their polymer skeletons. This exhibition will feature the artist’s recent explorations into FDM 3D printing, with parts produced uniquely for each artwork in the studio.
