About

Pace Gallery is pleased to announce Keith Sonnier: Ebo River and Early Works, featuring a new series of work. This exhibition will also include early pieces in neon and mixed media and two sculptures from his Tesla series, which have not been shown in over fifteen years. Ebo River and Early Works will be on view from November 26, 2016 to January 21, 2017 at 32 East 57th Street. Pace will publish a catalogue to accompany the exhibition, with a conversation between the artist and art historian Richard Shiff.

In his vibrant new Ebo River series, engaging compositions reveal new aspects of Sonnier as a colorist, with bold hues radiating from the lit neon tubes in complex harmonies. Flowing around one another, they are composed together with convex mirrors and found industrial materials that reflect, block or diffuse light, visually modifying their forms and the light cast from them. The Ebo River series is inspired by a river in the Congo, known to the local people as the Legbala, with works titled after towns and tributaries along the river. Sonnier’s interest in African art and culture is long-standing, and dates to his time as a teaching assistant to Carroll Janis, who taught a course on African art while he was an MFA student at Rutgers University.

Sonnier has been creating works with neon and other industrial materials for over forty-five years, and can be said to have invented the use of neon light as a fine-art medium. A selection of foundational works from 1968 to 1970 incorporating neon and incandescent light will be included in the exhibition. Rather than creating closed sculptural masses, Sonnier composes open forms in three-dimensional space. Two works from the Tesla series dating from the 1990s will also be exhibited. Dedicated to visionary physicist Nikola Tesla, these sculptures feature live electricity that arcs between copper rods and continues his experimental approach to using electricity as a sculptural element.

According to the artist: “Neon has always been a material in signage that one lays flat, and one in fact writes with. But I began to lift it from the board, and pull it out into space, and use it in a much more three-dimensional form.” Sonnier’s sustained artistic work continues to be lyrical and innovative.
