Brothers and Sisters Preliminary Photoshop study.
At each new venue for this work, new illuminated portraits are added from drawings by children from local schools. They are presented in different configurations, depending on available sites and new contexts.
NEON: The Charged Line will be a major new survey exhibition exploring how artists have worked with neon, from the 1960s to the present day. The exhibition will encompass a wide range of ways in which artists have experimented with light designed to be seen rather than illuminate; whether through text and language, the drawn line or an investigation into its physical and sculptural qualities.
