R. H. Quaytman, "Light Industry"

Posted by Triple Canopy (Creator)

We are pleased to offer, as a special incentive for donors of $500 or more, R.H. Quaytman's Light Industry. Named for our favorite venue for film and electronic art, and printed in an edition of 30, Quaytman's print breaks down cinema into its most basic component. The image of a lightbulb resting on a mirror recalls such other works as Anthony McCall's Long Film for Ambient Light, recently presented by Light Industry.

Born in 1961 in Boston, Massachusetts, Quaytman currently lives in New York City. Her work incorporates abstraction and layers of diamond dust, silkscreened photographs and hand-painted trompe l'oeil, personal and art-historical narratives. Quaytman's work is on view at this year's Venice Biennale and has been shown at the Whitney Biennial (2010) and at solo shows at SF MoMA (2010) and Kunsthalle Basel (2011).
