In Tuning For The Edge Of The Line Elaine Buckholtz will take over the entire gallery with an installation featuring light-based work and videos that activate the surface of printed media on the wall.
Buckholtz explores light as an ephemeral phenomenon and uses it to unmask hidden aspects of architectural forms in relation to painting. She uses visual and temporal repetition to explore the intersection of space, image, movement, and light. Her fascination with light has a long history. Buckholtz will use her background in lighting and theater design in this exhibition to generate her own luminous theater in the gallery.
This is Buckholtz’ third exhibition with Electric Works. Buckholtz received her MFA at Stanford University and has shown at The Swiss Technorama Museum, Winterthur Switzerland; Yerba Buena Center For The Arts, San Francisco, California; The Claremont Museum in Southern California; Pierogi Leipzig, Leipzig Germany; The Luggage Store in San Francisco; The San Francisco Arts Commission; California College of The Arts; Stanford University; The Wexner Center For The Arts; Sun Valley Center For The Arts; and Fusion Art Space, San Francisco, California.
