“Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion”
--From the film Donnie Darko
The artists in this exhibit use glitter, gold leaf, silver Mylar and other reflective materials in their work. These works literally sparkle and yet they also condemn or implicate. Often this work is a mirror that pointedly reflects our consumer driven politics or the ephemerality of our existence. Looking simultaneously to the past and future, these artists gild lilies, explore the depths of space and perform magic.
