Weekend Showcase: Exhibits at Hopkins Center for the Arts
A collection of artwork from Philip Noyed and photography by Vincent Dezutti is on display the Hopkins Center for the Arts through January 5.
Artwork by Philip Noyed
The artwork by Philip Noyed on the first floor uses light and color to catch your attention.
“They are light-box assemblage,” explains Jim Clark from the Hopkins Center for the Arts. “The work originates actually with paintings that he’s done and then he photographs.”
Noyed was influenced by taking pictures on a train during a trip to Europe. He was inspired by the motion blur outside of his train window.
When Noyed originally began doing the lighted pieces, he used fluorescent tubes to backlight the images. Now, he uses LED lights.
“They are really stunning at night, but they are equally exciting and colorful during the day,” explains Clark.
Noyed is also responsible for the geometric works of art that hang from the ceiling. They produce constantly changing colors.
Photography by Vincent Dezutti
Look closely at the photography exhibit on the second floor by Vincent Dezutti and you’ll see photos that require a second look.
“He composites them together in a computer and photoshop,” says Clark. “It creates for me a very pleasing sense of disequilibrium or mystery.”
Dezutti manipulates the images to be very interesting and mysterious.
These two exhibits at Hopkins Center for the Arts are up through January 5.
