Rosaline de Thelen’s Homos Luminosos
Spanish artist Rosaline de Thelen borrows and bends fiber optic technologies to create her haunting Homos Luminosos: floating human forms made of shimmering light. Currently on display at the Kinetica Art Fair in London, de Thelen’s various fiber optic creations have been capturing audiences for some time, but to imbue the medium with human characteristics certainly introduces a special, even poetic element to her artworks. Homos Luminosos are at once sculptural and ephemeral, their physicality resolving and vanishing as visitors move about the space. It comes as no surprise then that reactions to de Thelen’s work range from childlike fear to spiritual reverence (indeed, one exhibition in 2011 had her work installed in a church). De Thelen is able to contemplate the mysteries of light and illusion while also satisfying our taste for technology.
See more work by de Thelen at her website here, and check out more work by Kinetica artists here.
