Traver Gallery is pleased to present Illuminated Forest by Seattle-based art duo Jennifer Elek and Jeremy Bert.
Elek and Bert celebrate the natural world with this exhibition. Renowned for their contemporary glass and neon sculptures, the artists re-envision the traditional neon window-sign format to celebrate and draw attention to our natural surroundings. Woodpeckers, snails, and native foliage replace beer logos and marquee signs in their illuminated forest.
Elek and Bert say of their work, “The neon sculptures in this exhibition represent the birds that we see out our kitchen window and native species that we look for in the forest. Each piece in this exhibition is inspired by being still in the woods and observing the landscape. In creating these artworks, we aim to be as accurate to the identification of each subject while working within the material confines of neon and respecting the traditional craft of sign making”.
