The Astral Flight Hangar
Astral Flight Hangar is the first solo exhibition at Christopher Henry Gallery of multidisciplinary light artist Dev Harlan. Occupying two floors, his hybrid works combines the physical and the virtual with the use of sculpture, light and projection. The large scale works draw on foundational geometries, and yet serves as vessels which contain material seemingly captured from the ether. There is no reckoning required – they are Here and Now. They embody that indescribable matter that exists between everything and nothing.
Utilizing innovative video projection mapping techniques, Harlan controls and shapes the projected image into precision alignment with his sculptural forms. Through his masterful use of this hybrid video technique Harlan makes the intuitive a reality and gives the works rhythms and a dialogue that set their own pace. Using a palette of strong, assertive colors, kinetic geometries, and varying vantage points the artist projects an intuitive dialogue onto the sculptures that is succinct and cohesive.
