Mads Christensen "In Light Of" Solo Show
Mads Christensen's dynamic light-based works explore how we as viewers respond to illumination and color through the neuroreceptors of the human visual analog system. Following in the footsteps of groundbreaking artists exploring this medium like James Turrell, Doug Wheeler, Dan Flavin, Ivan Navarro and Olafer Eliasson, Christensen is interested in the manner by which our brain translates the information gathered by the receptors in the human eye into specific colors, and consequently the emotional experience.Christensen finds the interplay between color and intensity of light in relation to the human vision system fascinating. For example, the human eye senses red and blue light differently. Red-sensitive cones are prominent near the center of the retina, yielding great detail in the perceived image. There are however, relatively few blue-sensitive cones which make it difficult to see detail with just blue light. However, when blue and red lights are combined as in What Are You Blinking About, unexpected and fascinating consequences of pattern and multiple colors appear because of the neurology in the human vision system. Trained as an electrical engineer, Christensen’s work is an interplay between his software designs and the intangible qualities of light as medium. While artists throughout history have been fascinated by depicting light, Christensen creates what appears as two-dimensional paintings with light. This platform is reminiscent of the flat and static shape of a painting but its animation and range of color creates a dialog with the space by illuminating the viewer and surrounding area with ambient light. The dramatic, stimulating and soothing qualities inherent in his work present an evolution of visual experience.Christensen is being recognized by collectors and museum professional as possessing vast and palpable creativity, technical expertise and visual sophistication to perpetuate this fascinating evolution of light as art.
