Event Description

“Aerial x Light” – Stephan Zirwes x Marco Guglielmino
December 11th – January 2015
Krause Gallery -
149 Orchard St. NYC
Opening Reception: December 11th, 2014

NEW YORK — The Krause Gallery presents “Aerial x Light”; Stephan Zirwes and Marco Guglielmino share a fascination with the abstract but with two completely different methods. Stephan Zirwes soars 100's of meters above the ground to capture the twisted but beautiful abstract image with his camera while Marco hand twists his glass by to create the beautiful abstraction of neon sculpture. Although they both are using different mediums and creating different ideas, the idea of personal identity is in each one of their works. What may appear abstract at first glance can often reveal a common reality with further investigation.

Stephan Zirwes: Hanging out of an open helicopter hundreds of meters above the ground, German born artist Zirwes composes his graphical abstractions that challenge the viewers perception of actuality. While at first glance the images seem digitally manipulated, a closer look reveals they are in fact untouched reality. On a surface level the pictures allow an unemotional, aesthetic view. From Zirwes perspective. As the viewer digs deeper political and socio-critical themes emerge. Capturing images all over the world, he lets the borders between reality and fiction disappear.

Marco Guglielmino: Long fascinated by the interplay of light and color, Marco has found the perfect medium of expression in the creation of organic neon sculptures. These sculptures employ combinations of the four noble gasses mixed with mercury to give them even more nuance and depth of color while exploring shape, balance and proportion.
Employing a special neon that is sensitive to human energy, this pastel series glows and illuminates rather than shines. Marco pays homage to Nikola Tesla’s experiments with illuminating gasses by creating a series which interacts with the viewer’s electricity when touched. The viewer can make the piece brighten and dim, as well as cause the color to change at the point of contact from blue to pink and from violet to blue. The viewer can also direct the energy of the gas. Each piece has its own personality which shows through its glass and gas colors, thickness, movement, and particular illumination. Additionally, each piece responds differently to different touches; everyone experiences his own personal sculpture.
In another series, Marco introduces resin to add an additional dimension to his work. Each layer of resign is pigmented to create a foundation for the neon to lie in. In some sculptures the neon is completely engulfed in resin, others rest on a resin base, and on others the resin drips off to create organic patterns.
Marco’s work employs all available colors of gas and glass to celebrate illumination in a landscape of color.
All glass made is Murano Italy - All other components - electrodes & transformers are all American
