Neon Loves A Long Night

Neon Loves A Long Night
Virago Gallery
Nov 23, 2019 - Jan 26th, 2020

Opening Reception: Thursday, Dec 12th, 5 to 9pm

Neon loves a long night, where the secrets of dark places are revealed in a rainbow glow. Neon loves rain, where the electrified light spreads like a beautiful oil slick across the street. Winter in Seattle brings both, and with it, time for artists to dig inside and wake our deeper intuitions. 

Neon loves the Virago, a powerful womxn who holds both danger and beauty in her craft. Like this, we bring hope in the form of noble gas, charged with intention and illuminating what is already here in our capable hands. 

This group show contained works made by artists who bend neon themselves, and consider the practice a vehicle for unfucking the world.

Curator Tania Kupczak (she/her) is a visual artist, craftsperson and practicing witch. With a BA in Biology from Oberlin College and an MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Arts, she works professionally as a Production Designer for film. Tania is the recipient of a Jack Straw New Media residency and two Artist Trust GAP awards. Her studio work encompasses film, neon sculpture and drawing in an installation-based practice. She focuses on the relationship of the human body and the forces of nature that push against each other as we move through space / time. More about Tanis’s work at branchwater.xyz
