INSTALLATIONS OF GLASS + LIGHT – CHRIS WOOD { ARTIST TO WATCH }


tendrilla

“The optical materials I use in my work range from a simple water filled wine glass to the highly technical dichroic glass, basically anything that allows me to express the magic of light.” – Chris Wood

Each piece is mandala-like maze sculptures that mesmerize observers by controlling and trapping the fastest known thing in the universe light. Using only delicate pieces of colored glass the Cambridgeshire-based artist creates colorful light installations that tickle the visual cortex.

Dichroic (meaning two colour) is an optical coating that selectively reflects certain wavelengths  of light and allows the remaining wavelengths to transmit through.The material shifts from being reflective like a golden mirror to vibrantly coloured or almost transparent, depending upon the viewpoint and angle of light. It is a material that very eloquently expresses the magic of the phenomenon of light.

UK-based artist Chris Wood studied furniture design at Middlesex University before her interest in light led her “to explore the physical and visual qualities of glass.” She decided to study it at the Royal College of Art, where she worked on architectural scale projects dealing with issues of light and space. Here’s what she had to say about the intriguing art medium:

“Glass is a material which allows me to exploit the aesthetic potential of Light. Minimal structures, support simple arrangements of glass, which interact with light to create complex patterns of light and shade, which change depending upon the position of the viewer and the angle of the light source. I live and work in Cambridgeshire where I produce experimental glass and light works for exhibition. Informed by this exploratory approach I also produce work to commission for architectural and interior situations.”
