The interaction of light and matter impacts perception and visual stimulation. While on a conscious level the influence of light is not often taken into account at the time of creation of a traditional painting, the relationship between light and the paint on canvas plays a role in guiding every colour choice and stroke an artist makes.
With Lux, artist Sajid Wajid Shaikh explores the language of light, and how illuminance communicates with matter. By filtering rays through various materials that refract, bend, shape, magnify, and repel light rays or the source of creation, Shaikh creates ever-changing illusions for the viewer to experience. The light speaks and matter translates, creating art of another dimension. Is the creation where and how the light falls on its final destination – or is in the journey of creation?
