New York, NY—Leila Heller Gallery is pleased to present Night Paintings, a discrete installation of steel, shadow, and sound by Iranian born, Brooklyn-based artist, Afruz Amighi on view from February 18—March 26th, 2016. Composed in light and welded-steel, a diptych of two sculptural reliefs seeks to investigate the plural temporality of an architectonics of ritual and cultural memory. Night Paintings draw in shadow, in the sharp relief of darkness against light, in the liminal conflation of the ephemeral solidity of the line and the voluminous, enduring negative space of open metal silhouettes meeting air. Hers is not an illumination, but a darkening.
