Five2Watch: NEON


For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists who use neon in their work: Kevin Killen, Caro Williams, Stuart Robinson, Colin Booth and Conroy Sanderson.


Neon Dance, 2014-15

Kevin Killen

This series of work is a collaboration with choreographer, dancer David Olge and myself to create a site specific artwork. Ogle was invited to respond and react intuitively to the University of Ulster Art Gallery's dimensions, performing a series of spontaneous and elegant, gestural movements, while holding a set of lights. I then captured these movements using a long-exposure photography. The resulting images of distorted, staccato beams of light were then poetically translated into a unique, site specific neon installation. The movement of the camera allows for accidental drawing of lines of light. This playfulness adds to my process, enriching the final photographic drawing which I deconstruct and visualise in three dimensional neon forms.

Stuart Robinson

A model railway building with an exuberant sign playing with ideas of model making and Britishness clashing with Americana.
The model could perhaps be a mock up by a sign company to show a potential client the possibilities for their store or maybe just from an over-the-top bedroom railway layout.
