photo-eye Gallery is excited to announce Aeroglyphs & other Nocturnes, a
solo exhibition of photography by Reuben Wu. Simultaneously
reminiscent of the slick, neon glow of sci-fi aesthetics and the cryptic
symbolic language of ancient petroglyphs, Wu's work is clean, yet
mysterious. His photography hovers somewhere between the mythic and
the surreal, between dream and memory, with an undulating sense of
temporality slipping between the ancient past and the imagined future.
Light and land are entwined equally at the center of Wu's practice. By
affixing lights to drones and using them to illuminate select parts of the
landscapes he photographs, Wu draws precise geometric marks that hover
in the air like beacons, harbingers, and signs. His work is concise, yet
versatile in concept, offering new ways to approach the human
relationship to nature, technology, and the overlay between past, present,
and future. Aeroglyphs runs from August 30th to October 20th, 2019 with
an opening reception Friday August 30 from 5-7pm corresponding with
the Last Friday Art Walk in the Railyard Arts District.
