“Luminous Flux: When Light is Scene,” a solo exhibition by Las Vegas artist Dan Brady, explores the Brady’s visual storytelling through monotone paintings, whose contents are unseen until lit from behind. The exhibition is on view through July 21, 2023.
An innovative mixed-media artist, Brady has created white painted canvases that hide their imagery until “triggered” in some way by the viewer. These paintings explore the notion that artwork does not exist without a viewer. Placed in a gallery setting, the work appears, at first glance, to be calm, meditative abstracts, textured paintings; however, as the viewers interact with the work, they reveal powerful imagery, surreal worlds, and even comedic critiques on modern culture.
