Instead of focusing on the wide photos of galleries or artwork that we are used to seeing, Berlin based von Rauch shows us the fine details of artworks behind the scenes of gallery openings.

Images of art restoration, sculptures in storage, and the details of frames and stretched canvas make it difficult to place the gallery or name the artwork and instead leaves us with abstract images full of textures and somber scenery.

Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas is now showing American artist Soo Sunny Parks Unwoven Light instillation.

Thirty-seven suspended sculptures, made from welded chain link fencing and iridescent plexiglass make use of the gallery’s natural lighting and light fixtures to “capture the light that is already there and force it to reveal itself.”

Guests are invited to meander around without a set path to follow, allowing for each guest to have a unique experience and view of the pieces with some people standing side by side and having a substantially different view of the installation.

Unwoven Light will be on display until August 30th at Rice Gallery.
