The Lightpaintings of Stephen Knapp

April 13, 2008 - August 31, 2008

In his lightpaintings, Stephen Knapp fills the walls with vibrant color using only mirrors, dichroic filters and focused light sources. The exhibition featured a broad selection of these stunning creations.

Lightpaintings expand the concept of light sculpture and light art and continue the traditions of kinetic art, op art and abstract painting. Knapp's lightpaintings are the intersection of painting, sculpture and technology, exploring color, light and space, and may be a harbinger of the future of painting. Stephen Knapp has more than 30 years of experience creating installation art and exploring the possibilities of light. His work can be found in museum, public, corporate and private collections.
