Charlottesville light artist Circe Strauss began her career in Hollywood, where she worked as a special effects technician for the Los Angeles movie industry in the 80s and early 90s. TRANSIT, her upcoming show in the Iridian Gallery, will be site-specific, light-infused installations, designed to be experienced as three distinct spaces. The work is both unsettling and energized by light sources.
Strauss took inspiration from personal feelings and thoughts as a transgender woman. "This work encompasses the intersection of religion, bad counseling and misinformation," as Strauss says, "experienced through travel on a crooked path from there to here."
The exhibit runs through July 8.
