Lust for Light
Published by Gingko Press
Whether it glows lustrously from neon, eminates purely from LEDs or radiates with intensity from lasers, this elemental medium, light, fascinates artists and viewers alike. Lust for Light selects works by artists who have used light as a primary or catalyzing agent in the featured pieces. Taking a dynamic approach in its curation, the book features the use of illumination in more traditional gallery forms as well as in three dimensional and large scale installation pieces. Many of the featured artists are skilled fabricators who have been honing their light-inspired works for years, while others have made stunning pieces through collaborations and daring forays, cross-pollinating their artistic visions with new technologies in the process. Featured artists include Yayoi Kusama, Ivan Navarro, Jennifer Steinkamp, Laddie John Dill, Joanie Lemercier, Massimo Uberti, Barry Underwood, Miguel Chevalier, James Clar, Liz West and many more.
