Luminous Matter Fran Eber


June 14 – Sept. 6, 2019


Second Floor Quiet Reading Room


Artist Fran Eber describes her work, “Luminous Matter,” as channeling the forces of fluid dynamics. She says she achieves this otherworldly look by combining pigments, fluids and additives to produce a physical reaction. Layering different densities of paint leads to the formation of cellular structures that echo natural processes. Eber describes some of her results as comparable to phenomena that can be observed in astronomy, such as the Rayleigh-Taylor instability seen in The Crab Nebula.
