Light artists illuminate London’s Hayward Gallery

Wallpaper*- Ellen Himelfarb

“There could be few finer ways to pass a dreary afternoon than exploring the radiant survey of light-based artworks on show at London’s Hayward Gallery, an illuminated journey so warming – at times literally – that it becomes a foil for our mid-winter reality. […]

The majority of works, though, are uplifting in the extreme. Venezuelan op artist Carlos Cruz-Diez challenges not only our perceptions but our eyes themselves in ‘Chromosaturation’, where niches of red, blue and green neon meld to form brilliant pools of tertiary colour like atmospheric Prozac.”
