Artist James Stanford re-imagines Las Vegas’s iconic neons
The Vegas native is re-purposing the city’s neon signs and landmarks by layering original photographs to create striking digital mosaics Soho Lofts, located in the city’s Arts District, hosts PORTALS, a pop-up installation of Stanford’s backlit lenticulars. Exhibited works are inspired by classic photographs of the Tropicana Casino and Hotel. Motivated by the Bauhaus movement and Stanford’s interest in Buddhism, his kaleidoscopic works evoke the extravagance of Vegas through traditional photography and experimental digital art.
Curated by Laura Henkel of ArtCulture PR, the installation may be enjoyed from February 1 thru March 31, 2019.
