About the Exhibition: Luminous The works selected by juror Danielle Fox capture the elusive magic of the word, “luminous.� They feature artwork that is shimmery, sparkling, glistening, lustrous, & incandescent.

Juror’s Statement: When I think of luminosity, I think of something that is glowing from within. A luminous glow evokes a sense of awe and wonder, as it suggests that a hidden source of energy is at work. Luminosity is not a thing in the world, but rather a sensory experience and emotional response. To recreate this kind of metaphysical experience with an object (and at their most banal, all the artworks in this show are objects, whether a painting, photograph, or sculpture) is, I believe, a skill of the highest order when it comes to art. Now mind you, western artists have been transfixed by this goal at least since early Byzantine painting, and since then many approaches have become very clichÊ. Unfortunately, when we see a trope used too often in art, the wonder and awe tend to diminish. I hope that the group I have offered presents diverse approaches to luminosity, including a variety of styles and media, while still feeling very contemporary. - Danielle Fox, Slate Contemporary Gallery, Oakland
