OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 1, 6 – 8 PM ON VIEW: MARCH 1 – 23, 2024 Artist Statement: Throughout time and space, humanity has found our past in the ground and our future in the stars. Through patterns and documentation of these natural phenomena, we understand where we are and how the universe operates. Illuminations seeks to recontextualize this habit of pattern seeking and meaning making by exploring humanity’s relationship to control and that which we have no hope of controlling. In this body of work, both artists reference not only the aesthetic properties of light and its diverse sources, but also the idiomatic tradition that accompanies them. While Wilson’s work imperializes celestial bodies, contorting the stars into orderly rows and columns, Trépanier’s work traps atmospheric sources of dynamic light into static vignettes. Her photo-based works imitate the proportions of shrines and relics, pointing toward primordial sources of light. Both bodies of work aim to force human-made order upon wildly mysterious and untamable entities. In this way, Illuminations examines the exchange between manipulation and order through the lenses of cosmic and earthly light.
