Robert McNellis: Light Constructions

April 14, 2018 - May 2, 2018


Event Navigation

OPENING RECEPTION – Sat., April 14, 6-9pm

Robert McNellis combines light, industrial materials, film, video, and photography to create sculpture that bridges abstraction and representation. Subtle gradations of color, essential geometric shapes, and barely perceptible movement are explorations of pure form, while images of spaces and objects in the natural world are almost always obscured or scarcely defined, remaining elusive and unknowable. McNellis has recently begun incorporating elements of 16mm film from his early practice of art in the 1970s, introducing the elements of time, memory, and repetition into his work.

Robert McNellis studied Film and Digital Photography at the University of SouthFlorida and Troy University, and soon after began incorporated fluorescent lights, color filters, industrial materials, and LEDs to construct large 3-D works. He has exhibited his work at Jed Williams Gallery, ARTSPACE 1241, Holy Family University Art Gallery, and the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy, AL.
