The … position at eye level gives the object the status of reference point within the now indefinite atmosphere of the room. The fluorescent tube and the wall thus become a single new entity. There is a sense of absoluteness in the experience of Flavin’s work and, at times, a violence in the radically dislocated space.” (D. Marzon, Miniimal Art, Cologne, 2004, p. 50) Read More Artist Bio Dan Flavin American • 1933 - 1996 Dan Flavin employed commercially-sold fluorescent light tubes in order to produce what he liked to call "situations" or installations. His minimalist approach transcended simplicity through his use of neon colors and thoughtful compositions. With straight-edged light beams, Flavin would often create dynamic arrangements reminiscent of Fred Sandback's work with yarn. View More Works
