Bill Viola Light

Bill Viola is the kind of artist who will make non-arties fall in love with art and the classical purist admit to liking “contemporary art.” He is a master weaver of video installation, electronic sound and New Media to create a immersive, sensory enveloping experience, his enigmatic style bridging his art to reflections on life, death and consciousness. || For video installation exhibitions, white is the most interactive clothing color. Bill Viola light and colors dance and morph around my body as I made my way through the disassociating exhibition, becoming part of the projections, camouflaged, and entering deeper into Viola’s equivocal psyche.

“Vision connects you. But it also separates you. In my work, and my life, I feel a desire to merge. Not in terms of losing my own identity… but there’s a feeling that life is interconnected, that there’s life in stones and rocks and trees and dirt, like there is in us.”- Bill Viola

“There’s another world out there just beyond the world we’re in. It’s just on the other side of that translucent, semitransparent surface.”– Bill Viola
