Jay Shinn, Scissor Square, 2011, light projection and paint
"Harmony, the appeal of colour and the potential of shaping space, or merely suggesting this, are characteristics common to both Axel Anklam and Jay Shinn's work. Although both artists work very differently in their approach, they complement each other remarkably well in this show. Both depend on light to achieve the desired effect." - Dr. Martin Steffens, kunsthistoriker

Opening August 19 in Berlin, artist Jay Shinn and German artist Axel Anklam present new work in the exhibition Luxplus at kunstraum t27, on view through September 18, 2011.

Poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's last words, "Luxplus," or "more light," describes the metaphysical experience presented by the two artists who, by using light, time, and innovative materials, create a strong sense of ethereal infinity. Jay Shinn continues to juxtapose perception with reality, creating imaginary spaces and textures, seeking to transcend material limitations. Shinn's luminescent objects are reminiscent of holograms and appear to float while also embodying a startling sense of three-dimensionality, while Anklam uses light through translucent materials, questioning the durability and elasticity of the object itself.
