Luminescence II

March 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


On March 18th, 2017 @ 7:00 pm Burnaby will come alive as the opening of the exhibition Luminescence celebrates its 2nd year as a diverse and unique cultural experience. An event the whole family can enjoy. We invite you to the Deer Lake Art Gallery to experience the artwork by 25 notable artists, from varying disciplines, present the many ways this brilliant natural phenomenon, which is the essence of light or Luminescence has inspired them. Luminescence is hosted and organized by the Burnaby Arts Council.
This event features 3 outstanding installations:
The Optical Illusion Museum and Metro Vancouver Art & Mural Society is teaming up to create visually stunning 3D art for Deer Lake Art Gallery. The artistic style utilized is called trompe l’oeil, which is a French term for a visual illusion in art, especially as used to trick the eye into perceiving a painting or design that’s two dimensional as a three dimensional object. This evolution of art will use depth of perception, colours, and imagination that will leave you in awe and wonder. This is art that will truly trick your mind!

Hfour is Ben Z Cooper and Stuart James Ward, a Vancouver-based artist duo who create new media installations with the combination of technology and craft. Hfour uses its expertise in video projections, lighting, sound and special effects to bring public spaces, architecture, and natural features to life in ways that encourage thought and interaction. Hfour have done live video performances on relief sculptures in Japan, China, and across Canada. Their interactive works have been displayed at various events in Canada.
Pulse Quasar is an interactive sculpture that uses participants direct input from the kinetic energy of walking, jumping, anddancing to activate the sculpture. Pulse Quasar is a artistic representation of particle physics the building blocks of the universe. Robert Turriff is a Vancouver-based artist who sculpts commercially as a film industry technician and creates his own unique conceptual works as an artist. He has been sculpting professionally since 2002 and graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2009. His conceptual sculptures combine classical and contemporary practices. He loves skilled craftmanship and honours traditional methods of working with raw materials over modernized digital techniques. He often works with recycled materials, preferring the unconventional: mass-produced objects not usually used in art production that take on new meaning through the manner in which he combines them. Recurring themes in his work layer the parallel histories of cinema and the commercialization of nature, with an emphasis on how technology shapes both film production and natural resources. His artwork bows to the dominion of nature, questions our place in it, and reflects illusions we tell ourselves.
The Exhibition will open to the public on March 18th @ 7 pm and will run until April 8th, 2017.

Join us as we light it up on March 18th!
