Grotesque: the distortion or warping of an image that is reflected in the water of a cave. Arabesque: an elaborative application of repeating geometric forms that often echo the forms of nature. Here, an immersive art environment transforming Suyama Space into an otherworldly, light-filled cave created by electroluminescent strips on meticulously bent, contour-drawn flat bar steel. The glowing cave ceiling is amplified by and reflected in a large reflecting pond below. Saturated indigo skylights wash the gallery in color, while a 25 foot wide mirror multiples and further distorts the experience. Catalogue, essay by Barbara Goldstein.
