NEW YORK, NY.- Jane Lombard Gallery is showcasing a collection of new and recent works by gallery artist James Clar in the downstairs gallery space.

The works illustrate Clar's exploration of materials in the form of light, computer-generated software, performance, and video. The light-based sculpture Wormhole (2021), visualizes the electromagnetic spectrum, while Time Bandits (2018) offers a psychedelic nod to the 1980s film of the same name, with a time portal created by fluorescents.

Hey I'm Walking Here! (2020), inspired by Clar's move to the Philippines, is a video taken at ground level, fixed on the feet and legs of a man who is walking with ease, a struggle at times, a points soaking- and at times almost levitating. To capture this unique perspective, Clar built a film rig a top a rickshaw and filmed a dancer moving along a roundabout in Manila. A clip of the process can be found here.

RUN DOG RUN WILD (2021) is a 15 minute, looped video that offers a Muybridge-esque feel. Filmed during a lockdown-imposed curfew in Manila, Clar projected a laser-based image of a dog running the streets (an ode of sorts to the pups found roaming throughout the city). The darkened, empty streets seem like a dog's dream. A behind-the-scenes clip can be viewed here.

Control the Night (2021) consists of a small, LED screen flickering with color from a software-generated flame. Ever changing as a result of its programming, the flame gives digital reverence to the natural element that we have learned to manipulate and master.

James Clar (b. Wisconsin, 1979) lives and works in Manila, Philippines. Clar received his BA in film and 3D animation and his MA in Media Art, the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) from the Tisch School, New York University. His work has been exhibited at Mana Contemporary, Jersey City, NJ; Pera Art Museum, Istanbul, Turkey; Can Framis Museum, Barcelona; Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, South Korea; Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, FL; Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah, UAE; MoMA PS1, New York, NY; Parasol unit, London, UK; The New Museum, New York, NY; Somerset House, London, UK; Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem and Shadai Gallery at Tokyo Polytechnic University, Tokyo, Japan. Clar has been an artist in residence at Eyebeam Atelier in New York, NY; Fabrica, Treviso, Italy, and the FedEx Institute of Technology/Lantana Projects, Memphis, TN.
