Picture preview: The Electric Sky
Tuesday 17 April 2012
Paul Fryer, and artist who is known for working with electricity, is exhibiting work at the Pertwee Anderson & Gold gallery for the first time.
In his artwork he uses lightning machines propagating millions of volts to particle accelerators generating tiny superheated plasma stars with temperatures measured in the millions of degrees.
Fryer has even recreated the environment necessary to produce the subtle patterns of an earth-bound Aurora Vitralis in a bell jar.
For the show, The Electric Sky, Fryer investigates the connections between life on earth and astronomical phenomena through the motif of lightning, creating multiple images and representations of this dynamic electrical energy in both two and three dimensions, exploring myriad theories on the fabric of the universe.
