    Alison Jardine “Solar Explorations”

    DALLAS- LuminArté Gallery presents Solar Explorations, a solo exhibit of Dallas based artist, Alison Jardine, showcasing new works from 2013, which were partly completed during the artist’s residency in the Hambidge Center and forests of north Georgia. Solar Explorations looks upwards through the forests and records the often unobserved moments of sunlight and shadows as the sun lights up the earth. During creation of this work, the artist considers the idea of art as an act of worship, as the sun has been the center of worship for the earliest of human religions. The exhibition is comprised of two parts, A Day in the Life of the Sun, and The Shadow Self; and the show features several new paintings with two recent video installations, photographs and drawings. The context of the artworks is brought into the gallery through sculptural and painted installations of objects and tools that the artist found, and altered in her character as sun-worshipper and artist.
