Joe Maderia’s ‘Light Lines’ exhibition showcases the designer and photographer’s exciting new work as part of the Wandsworth Arts Festival. The artist’s unique images are created by drawing movement with light on long camera exposures using LEDs, glowsticks, bike lights and keyring torches. The effect is like three dimensional graffiti – ephemeral sculptures in urban environments at dusk and dawn.
The free exhibition will be open for the duration of the Wandsworth Arts Festival (May 8 – 24), Monday to Saturday, 9.30am to 6pm at The Old Sweet Shop, 11 Brookwood Road, SW18. Joe will be at the venue at 6.45 pm, Monday, 18 May to talk with Martyn Simpson about his practice and the ideas explored in the ‘Light Lines’ exhibition.
The artist will also be holding two ‘Drawing with Light’ workshops at Tara Studios, 356 Garratt Lane, SW18 on Saturday, 23 May, from 10am to 12pm, and 2pm to 4pm. Participants will discover how to use LEDs and long camera exposures to create unique digital images. Tickets cost £5 and booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
