Last weekend we visited an engaging show presenting the work of 16 international artists whose use low-tech means to create astonishing and stirring illusions. Although these works would seem to lend themselves to the digitized special effects and technology readily available today, this select group of artists tends to prefer age-old techniques such as trompe l’oeil painting, shadow play, and mirror anamorphosis.

Several of the artists in Smoke+Mirrors/Shadows+Fog employ shadow, reflection, smoke, and even gravitational pull to create substantive permanent artworks.

If you’re in New York City take a break from your computer and go enjoy this show. Up until April 17.

ARTISTS FEATURED: Claudia Bueno, Jim Dingilian, Fred Eerdekens, Hanna von Goeler, Rebecca Hackemann, Susanne Kessler and Herbert Cybulska, Heather Lewis, Charles Matson Lume, Oscar Muñoz, Sarah Oppenheimer, Hiraki Sawa, Suzanne Song, Mary Temple, Kumi Yamashita and Bohyun Yoon.

Hunter College/Times Square Gallery
450 West 41st Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues)
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 1 to 6 p.m.
The Gallery is free and open to the public
