Keith Lemley: Something and Nothing

March 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

New work from Keith Lemley that just opened at 1708 Gallery in Richmond, VA.

Keith Lemley’s sculptural installation consists of concentric rings of white neon tubes the paths of which mimic the natural variation found in the logs at their center. Lemley creates a space for dialogue between nature and the machine by filling the gallery with artificial light that is delivered through seemingly organic forms. By combining the everyday occurrence of perceiving light with an unusual delivery method, Something and Nothing calls attention to “the phenomenology of sight, the physiology of perception, and the experience of being a living body in space.”

And if you liked that, see also his Luma series.
