RUSSELL PRATHER: LAYERS & LIGHT
Russell Prather: Layers and Light features the work of artist Russell Prather in this solo installation-style exhibition of his most recent works at the Muskegon Museum of Art. Prather, a Michigan artist and Professor at Northern Michigan University, creates his multi-layered artworks from mylar, paint, and various hardware, establishing hybrid sculptures that shift in form with the viewer’s perspective. Multiple flat layers of opaque and translucent surfaces combine to create illusions of three dimensional forms. Combined in many instances with light, Prather’s work is intended to confound our habitual way of understanding what we see, and in that dilemma, opens ourselves to new ways of perceiving and understanding.
