Just when the world is all a twinkle with Christmas lights, Phillips, de Pury & Co. design specialist Marcus Tremonto, a light artist in his own right, is showcasing his own creative endeavors at the auctioneerís 15th Street gallery. Ghostly, surreal and with some Bauhaus riffs, these artworks that double as lighting fixtures are composed of electroluminescene, a material that glows in varied colors when stimulated with electricity. Some are akin to flat screen paintings -- a glowing line rendering of a chandelier, for example, on a panel that hangs on the wall -- while others are sculptural and more literally "lamplike."
