Gamut Gallery presents Shimmer, John Foster’s first ever solo exhibition. Foster combines color, light, and space into sculptural synergy forming art objects ranging from radiant house plants and wall pieces to furniture. Fine Art and Quantum theory intersect in the process he describes as “inter-dimensional quilting.” Sculpted peaks and valleys of light represent a collaboration between strength and failure. Shimmer seeks to bridge the distance between the viewers and the objects.
Foster, will be premiering selections from his new work, the “Chromaflora Botanical” Collection, as well as the first series of hand-formed dichroic aluminum paintings that make up the “Empyrean Corrugation.” Though featuring his latest work, Foster won’t let down his long-time fans; Shimmer will include many of his classical kaleidoscopic polyhedra, the iridescent geometric aesthetic that has earned John worldwide recognition.
The end result is an experience of objects exploding in colorful motion that is dynamic and yet discrete. “You cannot cast a shadow if you let light through,” says Foster. “In spectral flux, the shadow is a projection filtering light into chromatic harmony, activating optical vibrations that produce visual/tactile synesthesia.”
