This exhibition offers both abstract and literal representations of these expressions. Considering how light not only represents visible electromagnetic radiation, but also a rich narrative and conceptual device, the works on display represent these age-old phenomena through varied approaches including drawing, painting, photography, video and installation.Participating artists include Angelica Asaro, Wen-Han Chang, Ruofan Chen, Brett Henrikson, Yangzi Huang, Jeong Hur, Sang Hyock Lee (Calvin), Breeze Li, Ruocong Ma, Wanki Min, Angie Nam, Keika Okamoto, Tao Wei and Xueqing Yin.Juried exhibitions are a way for SVA’s student body to recognize the achievements of their classmates. Artists are selected from a large pool of applicants to the annual SVA Galleries call for entries, whose submissions undergo a rigorous examination of presented materials, including documentation of work and artist statements.
