Keith Sonnier was part of a group of artists who challenged preconceived notions of sculpture in the late 1960s by experimenting with materials. In 1968, he began creating wall sculptures using incandescent light and sheer fabric before shifting his attention to neon. The linear quality of neon allowed Sonnier to draw in space with light and color while colored light interacted with the surrounding architecture. Elysian Plain + Early Works will present 12 works in neon, featuring the first series created in the artist’s new studio in Bridgehampton. A catalogue with an introduction by art historian Richard Shiff will accompany the exhibition.
