Behind the Veil is a new series composed by layering multiple photographs of particular themes. My drawings are a multi level exploration. I use a variety of medium for the dimensional quality it offers. I begin with digital photography, manipulating the image in saturation levels and pixelation. I then digitally print the images on heavy watercolor paper and draw upon it in charcoal and pastels. I love the depth it creates and the contrast between the digitally printed image and the charcoal markings; it is the contrast of the artist’s markings over time. The drawings are then pierced with hundreds of tiny holes, through which fiber optic cables are threaded and trimmed. Bundles of the cables are attached to LEDs using Arduino micro-computing behind the drawings to illuminate the fiber optics.” – Lyn Godley 

Please join us for an opening reception on Tuesday, October 14 from 5:30-7pm to open Lyn Godley’s “Behind the Veil”. The opening will be followed by an artist’s talk at 7pm. The exhibit will be on view through the end of December 2014, in IHP’s East Alcove on the Main Level.
