Samuel Lynne Galleries presents Lisa Schulte: "The Significance of Light" opening reception
Samuel Lynne Galleries will present the opening reception of Lisa Schulte: “The Significance of Light.” Schulte is an American sculptor and light artist, known on social media and within the fine art world as “The Neon Queen” due to her command of the medium. "The Significance of Light" will be a juxtaposition of her current work in white light and wood, and colored light and line.
Schulte has over 40 years of experience working exclusively with neon, mastering the art form and building a neon empire; forging new frontiers in art and color along the way. Motivated in part by losing her sight temporarily in an accident at a young age, Schulte recovered her vision at the age of nine and gained a perspective and appreciation for light that few could ever truly understand. Her sculptures artfully combine found organic material, with hand-blown and sculpted neon tubes of light – otherwise commonplace entities that unite in a sublime synergy of nature and art. Exercising patience and appreciation for how light interacts with surfaces and how it’s understood as an experience became significant to her as an artist.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 10.
