Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Art of Light

This past weekend I went to the Yale Art Gallery for the first time in a very long time. In addition to seeing the spectacular new renovations to the museum and their expanded permanent collection, I saw the current special exhibition Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Art of Light. Viewers walk through the artist’s diagrams, sketches, and documentary photographs—this is incredibly helpful in understanding the artist’s process, and gauging how much work went into each piece. Once you have some background, you’re free to roam through the gallery and experience each beautifully composed light piece. Some of the larger pieces are so mesmerizing, it feels like you are transported into another dimension—experiencing time and space in a completely new way. Wilfred’s compositions create color combinations I never knew existed. What’s most remarkable about his body of work is that they were created before the digital age of technology, dating as far back as 1919.

I highly recommend taking a trip to the Gallery and experiencing them yourself! Lumia is open until July 23, 2017.
