Wilkinson Gallery: The Green Ray (until 10th April 2016)
As a wonderful space, each piece within the boundaries of the two levels of the gallery is able to inhabit its own territory. Excitingly, there is no continuity with media or message, so while the works come together collectively, there are many opportunities to deeply analyse each piece individually. Curator Andrew Hunt has embraced sound art, which again has been a greatly successful and compelling decision, as will be addressed. The lower gallery begins, anti-clockwise, with three photogram images from Lisa Oppenheim's 'Language of Flowers' series. Aesthetically stunning and enticing, they evoke the dynamism and technological force of twentieth-century Futurism and suggest contemporary methods of depicting natural forms, while also presenting a flash similar to the green version which is sought by 'Le Rayon Vert''s Delphine.
