PHILLIP K SMITH III: Lucid Stead: Four Windows and a Doorway.

Examining the elements and affects of his acclaimed project, Lucid Stead, Smith pulls the light panels from their original desert home, relocating them to the gallery environment. By turning the panes towards each other, the changing hues infinitely reflect and merge within the planes while the shifting and blending light washes over the space, allowing the viewer to focus on the interaction of pure color.

This installation is both an experience in itself as well as a bridge to the future. Further exploring what was revealed to the artist with Lucid Stead: Four Windows and a Doorway, Smith will again site an installation into the landscape with his monumental light sculpture “Reflection Field” that will launch this month.

Lucid Stead: Four Windows and a Doorway debuted at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster CA earlier this year (view video here) and will be up for the remainder of the season.
