Reisha Perlmutter incorporates the memories of light rays and and gentle riffles reflecting through the water she obtained when she was being raised near the ocean.
Having studied Fine Arts in institutions throughout America, it was only during a residency in Italy that Perlmutter was reawakened to her fascination with light. The result of this renewed inspiration, her AQUA series explores ideas of “weightlessness, and our deep connection to our senses beyond the confines of thought or intellect. Light is critical to these works. It is metaphorical, of course, in terms of internal illumination, but also directly necessary in evoking sensation and beauty through its presence and inherent complexity.”
