Light Between The Islands is an installation that includes islands of shimmering white bubbles, composed of various sizes, handmade from a different mold, and with drawings silkscreened over each of their surfaces. The bubbles that form the installations are a part of modular units and layers. Amoros multiplies and arranges the units into structures that could become monumental in scale, all the while appearing to be weightless.
The appearance of the artworks will change as the light that streams through the gallery’s front window changes throughout the day. Sometimes the installation will seem buoyant and ethereal, while at other times it will appear to be a solid mass. In any guise, she intends Light Between The Islands to convey a sense of wonder and playfulness. As visitors walk around, they will encounter and react to the presence and magic of her beloved Uros Islands in Lake Titicaca.
Litvak Gallery, founded in 2008, expanded its reach in early 2012 by representing artists of all media with showcases of contemporary Israeli and international artists.
