Whatever I did should be recognizable as, let’s say, something no matter where. I maintain this to this day." Dan Flavin, 1982 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
