Solstice is a convening of eleven artists in celebration of the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, and the first day of summer. Each of these artists engages with light as a central component of their work, and this exhibition celebrates the sun and the energy that makes all life possible on Earth. Artists in this show use a multitude of light sources, which are then reflected, refracted, gathered, captured, directed, shattered, lensed, and bent into new form.
Participating artists include: Valeria Divinorum – @valeriadivinorum | Magali Duzant – @magaliduzant | Rita Jimenez – @iritadescent | Night Shining – @_nightshining | Camilla Padgitt-Coles – @ivymeadows | Steven Pestana – @stevenpestana | Sophia Sobers – @sobers__ | Jonathan Sims – @chromadetic | George Stadnik – @geostadnik | Testu Collecathantive – @testucollective | Anika Todd – @anikatodd
Solstice is curated by Jonathan Sims, a New York City based visual artist. His visual arts practice is characterized by geometric abstractions and light. A consistent premise underlying his work is that a modern human’s relationship with the very ancient past is mirrored in their relationship with the distant future.
