Stephen Knapp: New Light

“Lightpaintings” are pieces of glass that is cut, shaped, polished, treated with layers of metallic coatings, mounted on stainless steel, and illuminated with light bulbs. These works are then installed on walls and ceilings, creating multi-dimensional prisms that refract and reflect colored light shards.

World-renowned American artist Stephen Knapp is best known for his use of the medium of lightpainting. Knapp gained an international reputation for large-scale works of art which are executed in media as diverse as light, kiln-formed glass, metal, stone, mosaic, and ceramic.
