"I am interested in making images that theatrically depict colored light healing and stated in frank terms, I am interested in creating cinematic narrative images that are medical charades of Chromatherapy." - Patrick Nagatani
Reminding viewers that light is the basic tool of photography, Nagatani creates real and imaginary relationships between photography, light and healing, as he photographs persons, animals and objects being exposed to a variety of colored lights. The artist is also exploring popular culture's fascination with growth and healing, teasing the fine line between a staged fiction masking as a documented reality, and the undeniable need humans have to embrace magic and pagan rituals for their own sake.
The exhibit runs Feb. 24 - March 25, 2011, at the Lycoming College Art Gallery in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
