“The Bright Side”: a solo exhibition by Sarah Clough (MFAST ’17)

Sarah Clough’s “The Bright Side” is now on view at Mainsite Contemporary Art in Norman, Oklahoma and will run through January 12, 2018. This exhibition is hosted by the Norman Arts Council.

The exhibition includes a gallery-wide mural and a series of paintings, all rooted in graphology and semiotics. The works begin as words, a nod to her background in language, taking on both a chaotic but also orderly quality further twisted by the use of fluorescent and phosphorescent paint.

“These works are meant to be in sunlight, under ultraviolet light and in the dark,” Clough said, noting that visitors will be given special ultraviolet flashlight with which to uncover the layers behind the pieces and larger mural. “These works allow viewers to control their experience: What is illuminated, what is unearthed and what remains buried or unexamined.”

Mainsite Contemporary Art is located at 122 E Main St. in Norman, Oklahoma.
