Sculpted Light bridges the distance between architectural design, lighting engineering, and contemporary art, offering viewers an immersive experience that foregrounds light, color, and form.

About

The exhibition features several distinctive bodies of work by Zamora, including Color Wheel, New Lighting Devices, and the premiere of his latest series, Flowers for Euclid

At the entrance of Sculpted Light is Zamora’s interpretation of the traditional color wheel, a foundational tool in color theory. Color Wheel transcends its two-dimensional representation, materializing as a glowing architectural structure that visitors are invited to enter. There they are immersed in a spectrum of hues that shift and blend, revealing the complex relationships between colors.

Also featured are several earlier bodies of work by Zamora, including New Lighting Devices, a series previously exhibited at As-Is Gallery ­in Los Angeles. The New Lighting Devices are a curious set of wall objects activated by a central lightbulb which reveals a hidden trick. Somehow the shadow cast by the lamp is not the same shape as the fixture it is emanating from. 

The main draw of Sculpted Light is the premiere of the artist’s latest body of work, Flowers for Euclid — a series characterized by the collision of Euclidean geometry and organic floral motifs, and for which color is again a central theme. On the surface, these new light sculptures appear both pop and minimalist. Through his 3D programming approach and artistic vision, Zamora has created a new synthesis. The optical illusions of earlier works have evolved into a complex array of Euclidean forms that disguise themselves as simplified flowers, and as flowers that disguise themselves as simplified geometric forms. In Flowers for Euclid, individual fixtures coalesce into a dynamic tableau, where shadows and light join in a wild dance of form and color.
