Leo Villareal was in town on Saturday night for the opening of his fifth exhibition with the Conner Contemporary Art gallery. The show includes several new works that feature Villareal’s distinctive technique, combining light producing sculpture-work with software and sequencing. His use of color tone, from light to dark and across the rainbow, has the ability to transform spaces into an other-worldly kind of experience.

Villareal is perhaps most well know amongst DC residents for his piece Multiverse, on permanent display at the National Gallery of Art, and searching for “multiverse” on flickr proves the installation is especially popular for photographers (no bias here!). But regardless, the work speaks for itself. So go see it.
