Orest Tataryn is a practicing artist / designer / curator who uses light as his expressive medium. As a light sculptor he is interested in transformation – how light can transform space, create optical illusions, project afterimages, and alter perception. With light there is always a second factor and that is colour. Colour is very important both for it’s emotional resonance and for it’s dissonance – it sparks the curiosity. The relationships between light, colour, and shadow are the constant and conscious challenges and inspiration in the work.
