Bill Culbert


Bill Culberts work thoughtfully explores the perceptual interactions between light and the human eye. As a disciple of the mid-sixties British Experimentation movement, he utilizes discarded plastic goods and ready-made materials to construct the objects of his illumination. His photographs and sculptures have been exhibited over five decades, gaining wide recognition in New Zealand and Australia. He has been commissioned to do numerous public art works that emphasize light as a medium. Most recently. Culbert was included in a group show at Pace Wildenstein gallery along side some of the most well known light artists known today. Born in 1935 in Port Chalmers, New Zealand, he now lives between the South of France and London, England.
