Fred Tschida Enchants the Eye With His Kinetic Neon Sculptures

The artist will unveil a new exhibition at The Art House and Neon Workshops.

The Art House and Neon Workshops will unveil a luminous new exhibition by artist, Fred Tschida. As a pioneer in the field, Tschida took a craft that was largely attributed to signage and wayfinding and turned it into a movement and fully-fledged art form.

In “CIRCLESPHERE,” the artist uses seven gas-filled glass illuminated sculptures that are mounted on rotating devices to create an ethereal display of neon light, color, and form. When viewed in real-time, the sculptures appear as outlines, however, when seen through long-exposure photographs, the nearly nine-foot beams of light take on a three-dimensional form. To accompany the exhibition, the artist will also showcase a work entitled, “SPHERE,” an enormous floating red display that will be on view at Neon Workshops 3,000 square foot space.

Neon Workshops was founded by Richard Wheater, a former student of Tshida’s when he taught at Alfred University. Wheater was infatuated by Tschida’s kinetic sculpture, Sphere (2000). The exhibition is thus a fitting tribute to that moment, and one that Wheater hopes inspires a new generation to carry on the traditions of neon art. In an interview with The Guardian, Wheater said the audience will see “neon in a way that they haven’t before. And this is what art does when it works best, it gets them to look at something differently.”

“CIRCLESPHERE” and “SPHERE” will go on view at Wakefield’s The Art House and Neon Workshops from September 29 to November 28.

Also on view, MoMA has brought back the popular “Automania” exhibition in New York.
