Smoke and Mirrors: It’s All Light!

Now showing at Rochester’s Memorial Art Gallery

California artist Matt Elson use color, light and mirrors to create optical illusions that envelop viewers who peer inside.

Elson has said, “They are a form of contemporary portraiture that is tuned to social media. Typically, two people will walk up, look in from each side, put their heads in the box, be surprised/get happy, then spontaneously take out their phones, photograph each other and publish those pictures via the web.”
