15 x 20 inches, Edition of 10, $950 unframed

Last Friday Reuben Wu’s solo exhibition Aeroglyphs & Other Nocturnes opened at photo-eye Gallery. Mysterious and captivating in both process and aesthetics, Wu’s work involves illuminating nocturnal landscapes with lights attached to drones. The resulting images are otherworldly, depicting land and water in saturated color, bold and slightly surreal, crowned with the ethereal glow of cryptic symbols drawn in the air with light.

Wu’s photography has a unique way of sliding in and out of our typical perceptions of time. The monumental landscapes that he carefully chooses to photograph feel ancient, permanent and unchanging in a way that is deceptively tangible. However, the simple, esoteric language of symbols created by the drones’ clean light is temporary, appearing and disappearing at Wu's command. The precise movements of the drone lights echo the minimal aesthetics of contemporary technology and feel futuristic against the age of the landmasses beneath. By juxtaposing these short, luminous bursts of man-made light and the enduring terrestrial stillness below them, Wu reveals to the viewer that each of these works documents a singular temporal fragment. With these photographs, Wu slices moments out of time, simultaneously pointing to past and future by slowly exposing the present.
