Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro wills premier his largest artwork to date, an enormous multi-acre walk-through installation, at Sensorio in Paso Robles, California beginning May 19, 2019. The British-based artist’s Field of Light is his largest site-specific project to date. The multi-acre, walk-through sculptural composition will cover Sensorio’s rolling hills with an array of over 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber-optics, gently illuminating the landscape in subtle blooms of morphing color. Powered by solar, the stunning exhibition is expected to captivate visitors, inviting them to engage with the countryside through an ethereal light-based and sculptural experience.
London-born Bruce Munro is best known for large-scale light-based artworks inspired largely by his continuous study of natural light and his curiosity for shared human experiences. With a fine arts degree, early career training in the lighting design industry and an inventive urge for reuse, his art captures his responses to literature, music, science, and the world around him. His work has been commissioned by and displayed in special exhibitions in galleries, parks, grand estates, cathedrals, botanical gardens, and museums across the globe. Smithsonian Magazine has called Munro’s work “stunning” while the Guardian noted, “This is art you feel rather than art you view.”
