Using light, form, color, and movement, Sunil Garg creates site-specific installations to turn NJCU’s Visual Arts Gallery into a multi-sensory environment which visitors can freely explore. Through Garg’s artistry, ordinary materials such as paper, chicken wire, and PVC are morphed into ethereal matter, constantly changing impressions, and reflecting colored lights. Although technologies enable this environment, they are almost invisible and visitors can get lost within a limitless space.

Born and raised in a farming village in India, Garg grew up with only natural light. After moving to New Jersey, Garg had a long career in business and law before starting to make art out of manufactured light five years ago. His experimental light art drew much attention in a short time, and Garg received an artist-in-residence opportunity at Gallery Aferro in Newark and was commissioned to make site-specific public art installations in Key West, FL, Madison WI, and Long Beach Island, NJ among others. His work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Hyperallergic, Artefuse, and other media. He lives in Summit, NJ, and works in Summit, East Orange, Newark, and Jersey City, NJ.
