Playground Presents: Patrick Ethen, "Light Works" Solo Exhibition says
PLAYGROUND DETROIT is pleased to present artist and designer Patrick Ethen in his first solo exhibition on Friday, February 12th. His work has been previously seen as large installation sculptures at Detroit’s internationally renowned music festival, Movement.

Ethen’s work takes viewers directly to the source of vision: light. As his intuition led from architecture to artistic practice, the luminous bulbs comprising each of his hand-wired pieces seem to have intuitive motion. Embodying the rhythms of House music, Ethen pairs sound and visual senses as light stimulates receptors of the eye. Hypnotizing patterns travel along the plotted lines, as represented in his pencil-drawn Gravity Mandalas.

The body of work, which includes proximity sensor activated Mira, Mira (one of many collaborations with Ellen Rutt), is literally and figuratively electric, enlightening the audience with the possibility of mergence between hard-wired architectural design, the artistic eye, and the influence of sound.

Ethen will also be presenting work in the niche windows at David Klein Gallery Detroit, as curated by PLAYGROUND, opening with Kari Cholnoky’s solo show on February 6th. These light works will be visible to passers-by 24 hours, 7 days a week.

Artist Talk: March 12th, 2016 // Join Patrick Ethen for an intimate conversation on Second Saturdays, about his process, inspiration and more. Gallery hours are 12-6pm, artist talk will begin promptly at 4pm.
