LIGHT TRICKS: Julie Alpert and Andy Arkley

Julie Alpert and Andy Arkley present new installation, sculpture, drawing, and interactive video. Each artist utilizes various forms of light and shadow (projected, reflected, and emitted) to evoke a nostalgic, playful, dramatic mood. They each use light to draw attention to their invented visual language of signs and symbols abstracted from childhood memories. Alpert’s use of everyday materials and her repetition of hearts, chains, hashtags, drips, and friendship bracelets refer to high fashion, teenage doodling in the margins of notebooks, the keepsakes she made and traded at summer camp, and the inevitable decay of all things. Arkley’s work encourages a childlike sense of discovery and strives to foster inclusion, positivity, and elation.
