Sunny Ra- Nightscapes
Subtle suggestions often elicit the most profound experiences.
Rather than shining light on a subject, Sunny Ra’s current body of work Nightscapes offers strong but limited suggestions to a meditative landscape that allows the viewer to indulge in the unknown. Allowing color to reach an optical height as it eclipses the surrounding canvas, the paintings project the traditional landscape into abstraction. In this world, night becomes a visual obstacle; forcing the viewer to wander in the hidden beauty and curiosity of the darkness.
Within the brightly painted walls of LVAA’s PUBLIC gallery, filled with light from the prominent façade windows, the work creates a remarkable void to be explored.
