OPENING NIGHT: Wolfram Alderson


Several years in to writing Pupazzo Universo, a science fiction epic, Wolfram has developed a series of illuminated sculptures based on characters and themes in the work, scheduled to be published in 2018.

The Love Icon Show features works that Wolfram describes as “illuminated sculpture-paintings.” The pieces average six feet high and five feet wide, and are multidimensional with complex elements on multiple planes – all lighted with incandescent and LED light. Supporting the larger illuminated works, are a series of “explanatory paintings” depicting scenes and themes from Pupazzo Universo.

The entire exhibit is shown in the dark, adding to the mystery and magic that Wolfram strives to create in his exhibitions. The exhibit features a Massive Love Altar – over 9 feet tall – and Wolfram has made a Call for Exceptional Lovers to photographed with the Altar.

Summer 2017 was the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. But, guess what? Every summer is the Summer of Love! Every Spring, Fall and Winter too! What better way to celebrate love on epic scale than to invite this exhibit to your home town? You will love it!

All the work is self-illuminated and shown in the dark. This an extremely important point in history to be featuring themes of universal love. During this 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, most of the emphasis was on looking back in time at how Love shifted Earth culture in a different direction…the work featured in the Love Icon Show is looking forward into time and imagining a future where Love is the most powerful force in the universe, and what that might look like. All of the pieces in the show are essentially “Puppets of Love.” For more info go to
