Fred Eversley, one of the important Light and Space artists from Los Angeles who, along with his contemporaries DeWain Valentine and Peter Alexander, works with cast resin to explore the limits of visual perception. Energy and kinetics are at the core of Eversley’s art and sculptures. It is more about the energy and movement of the viewing space in relation to the viewer than the physicality of the objects themselves. Eversley’s sculptures are based upon the geometry of the parabola—whether he is using translucent or reflective materials—whereby the intrinsic concave surfaces dictate the physical properties and resulting optical effects, bending and distorting the view of whatever is on the other side. The translucent polyester resin concentrates color in the thickest portion and creates a color gradient that further redefines the space and expands the viewer’s perception. Light Lens is the gallery’s first solo exhibition for Eversley and will feature a selection of his sculptures in polyester and bronze, including a wall piece, and his well known “cathedrals”, “lenses” and “slices.”
