Simon Ungers: Light Works @ GERING/LOPEZ GALLERY
OPENING THIS FALL
GERING & LóPEZ GALLERY is pleased to present Light Works, a posthumous solo exhibition of sculpture by the German artist and architect Simon Ungers.
The totemic light works of this exhibition assume an imposing aura, dominating the gallery space and intervening in the viewer's sense of spatial orientation. At the same time, the works possess an ethereal quality, as these ghostly glowing forms appear hollow, empty. The result is a powerful presence that keeps absence close at hand. Aesthetically elegant and evocative, these monoliths deliver an encounter with the sublime.
Fall gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm. For further information please contact Julie Bills at 646.336.7183 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
