The City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division debuted a new art installation titled LightWave by Jessica Goehring on Monday. The artwork is located in the staircase by the entrance in the West Hollywood Park Aquatic & Recreation Center, located at 8750 El Tovar Place. The art installation will run through January 23, 2024.
LightWave is a kinetic artwork that pays homage to the California Light and Space Movement and is comprised of two layers, together creating a geometric aesthetic. The artwork features a rainbow-hued abstract image digitally printed on aluminum, partially covered with color coated aluminum chain links printed with the same image. The combined double image plays with perspective resulting in a holographic quality, like the effect of lenticular photography in a sculptural form. The hanging chain screen is atmospheric, allowing for movement of the secondary layer.
Jessica Goehring lives and works in Los Angeles. Goehring’s practice explores the digital world through artworks that are both acidic and humorous, combining personal narratives, art historical references, and internet culture. Goehring has merged her love of painting and photography into digital works that are kinetic in nature. Drawing inspiration from the California Light & Space Movement, Goehring merges digital technologies with analog media creating holographic artworks that activate the space they are displayed in. She studied photography at the School of the Visual Arts in Manhattan, NY. Her most recent exhibitions include Epoch Gallery, Spring/Break LA Art Fair, Durden and Ray, and IDOLWILD.
