jay shinn neon art print litho

 

Jay Shinn is best known for his sculptures and installations with neon tubes- the different colours and carefully composed positioning of each light create fascinating visual effects and optical illusions. He has expanded the boundaries of conventional photo-lithography by using the neon tubes themselves to expose the plates.

 

As this was new territory for us as well, we first did a number tests with different colours of neon as well as experimenting with the distance between the tube and the photosensitive plate. For Jay's images, different combinations of exposure time and tube-to-plate distance were used for each of the colour layers that combine to create the final print.

 

Jay's wall works are often created in series, hung in varying geometric constellations that change depending on the exhibition space. His new lithographs continue this direction and he chose twelve colour variations that will be displayed together.
