Exhibit Photographs by Clint Baclawski Oct. 29-Dec. 4
Cal Poly's Art & Design presents an exhibit titled “Lush,” featuring the work of photographer Clint Baclawski, will open Thursday, Oct. 29, in the University Gallery in the Dexter Building (No. 34) at Cal Poly.
The evening will open with a talk by Baclawski at 5:10 p.m. in Room 150 in the Dexter Building; a reception will follow at 5:45 p.m. in the University Art Gallery.
“Clint’s work is unique in the sense that instead of using gallery lights to illuminate a flat image on the wall, Clint’s photos emanate light from within, giving them a substance that is normally associated with sculpture,” says Garet Zook, Gallery Specialist. “The light spectrum that moves through the prints themselves fills the room with its luminescence, creating a space that is in its entirety an experience.”
With this exhibition, Baclawski presents to us his most ambitious work to date. The University Art gallery will be filled with 64 panels of 128 LED bulbs. The 128 linear feet of images were photographed outside of Boston, Massachusetts and feature blades of grass on a soccer field. The entire image captures the length of the field; corner post to corner post. Within the room, you’ll see a full range of color variants, from the lushest greens with the bluest of blue skies, ending in negative colors; purple and yellow with a full black and white transition in-between.
Exhibit will be showing in the University Art Gallery 10/30/15–11/24/15, Tuesdays–Saturdays 11am–4pm.
