the newest full-scale installations by american artist barry underwood are formed in his typical investigative approach.
underwood gauges the potential for ethereal illumination of familiar landscapes by infusing the spaces with sculpted light.
the artist first searches for an outdoor location, then infusing this natural environment with glowing objects, the light and color
enables an abstract quality to overtake the ordinary natural surroundings. underwood's efforts result in a surrealistic cinematographic
or theatrically-minded photographic story.
