James Turrell: Large Holograms features fifteen unique large-scale transmission light works measuring over 5 to 6 feet in height, all of which were made in 2007 and 2008 and are on view for the first time. Holograms are traditionally used to make an illusion, where light becomes the means through which a three-dimensional object is depicted. Turrell instead uses holography to examine the phenomenon of the light itself, capturing it’s normally fleeting qualities and allowing light to become the object.
James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles) has been the subject of over 170 solo exhibitions worldwide since 1967. The artist lives in Flagstaff, Arizona.
