Her working style
Generally all artists use some form of light in their visual art work but Christine Sciulli has managed to use light in a completely different form in her new artwork, ‘Languid’. ‘Languid’ is at display at the Governor’s Island Art Fair. She has used light as the graphic kinetic tool with which she has activated and shaped space. Artist Sciulli has been using video and light projections since some time now in order to awaken space. She often projects light onto organic material as she had done in ‘Expansive Field: The Environmental Art of Christine Sciulli’ which was in display at the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton, New York in May of 2013. In this month-long installation, beams of light were focused on piles of branches which were shaped like Haystacks. It was a tribute to Monet’s famous series of paintings on the perception of light. In Sciulli’s recent show, light darted and danced like a swarm of fireflies and then at one point, appeared to flip the entire field on end like a giant illuminated pancake. “I have always been interested in light,” Sciulli says. She further explains how she was always intrigued by light as a child. She used to flash her knife sitting at the dining table to watch how the light would hit the shiny metal and then bounce off again. “Depending on what light attaches to, or reflects off of, that will define and transform the space. First though, you have to capture the light, otherwise it will just keep moving.” She explains. Sciulli further explains that to capture light, you require matter in a material form. For her artwork, ‘Languid’, she distilled the elaborate experience of Expansive Field and focused her entire vision in a tiny attic room in the building 404A on Governor’s Island. Inside the cloistered space of the attic with its sloping ceiling she has sewn netting and tulle together in order to create a crinoline spherical form that is reminiscent of a giant petticoat. The result is a series of concentric circles that spin, flip, spiral, flourish and curl across the crinoline structure. Radial lines of light swing out from the center like a radar sweep. At different times, the piece evokes geometry, but in Sciulli’s world, as she puts it, that ‘math dances like a ballerina in a jeweled box’. And yet, while the shapes and forms twist and turn, the light, the energy, remains solid. Sciulli is an artist and an illumination engineer who has studied architecture as well as drawing and photography. Her work revolves around the point of intersection between light, shape and line. She draws with light in order to make the math of space visible. In Sciull’s work one gets to witness the duality of light. Light is both particle and wave and she manages to collapse it into unified shapes. Languid was baroque and elegant, organic and man-made, and an enthralling piece that magically displays the geometry of light in space.
