Come enjoy The David Ireland House between sunset and dusk. When the sun drops on the horizon, the exhibition, Light Repair, subtly illuminates textures, shapes, and material with a special glow from the many light sculptures placed throughout the House. Come alone or with friends. An artist guide will be on hand to answer any questions.
Light Repair features the work of artist and electrician Rico Duenas. The exhibition is inspired by the transformational power of light in a room and the implications of highlighting and staging stripped-down everyday objects in an elevated view.
Rico Duenas was born and raised in San Francisco. As a child, he spent time on the east coast with his grandfather, a sculptor and founding member of Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. In San Francisco, he also often accompanied his father to flea markets and garage sales, where his father bought, fixed, and re-sold furniture. It was there that he was introduced to artist Kevin Randolph, who was repurposing lights, and quickly developed a love of lighting and sculpture. He lives and works in San Francisco as a union electrician and artist.
