In a bit of a departure from his recent light sculptures created with canvas, acrylic and LED lights, Hap Tivey has created a site-specific installation of projected light. Folded Light is pure, minimal abstraction, utilizing aspects of sculpture and painting, both foundational media that Tivey has subverted throughout his career. A sculptural element adhered to a wall will be bathed in colored, projected light, casting shadows throughout the gallery. It is an experiential piece, as the projected color changes slowly and imperceptibly, causing the observer to sometimes second-guess their own perception of the space around them.

Hap Tivey is often associated with the Southern California Light and Space Movement. His work is included in numerous museum collections as well as private and corporate collections including the DeMenil Collection (Houston, Texas), The DIA Foundation (New York, New York), The Guggenheim Museum (New York, New York and Bilbao, Spain), the Museum of Modern Art (New York, New York), and P.S.1 (Queens, New York). Currently, he is a member of the faculty at Bard College.
