Ghost Light Gallery

I saw a light up sculpture from Ghost Light Gallery on Instagram and was immediately sold. Her beautiful creatures are often softly illuminated, articulated with moving parts, or they share secret worlds within them.

Her two dimensional work is also quite lovely.

In reference to her pieces, artist Jamie Winn says:
As an artist I have constantly struggled with the burden of creating “relevant” art. I’ve done my best over the years to allow myself to become vulnerable in the public’s eye while at the same time attempting to seem somehow mysterious, as I’m sure most women do. Many of the things I have created are deeply rooted in my childhood and have mostly been visible through my automata work.

I strive to create things that force the viewer to use both sides of the brain- appreciating the obvious artwork and then through the moving mechanisms, attempting to discover how it is working. I’m trying to push the boundaries of self discovery both for my art appreciators and myself. That is my goal.

Her Instagram contains work I didn’t see in her online portfolio, so don’t miss it!
