Beautiful examples of the Light fantastic

by The REJIGIT Blog

Stephen Knapp is an American artist widely known as a creator of lightpaintings.

His lightpaintings are created using specialised glass which is treated with layers of metallic coatings that act as a selective prism to separate focused light into different wavelengths of the spectrum. The glass is shaped and polished which allows it to refract and reflect light onto a surface and the surrounding space.

Stephen has had solo museum exhibitions at the Boise Art Museum, the Chrysler Museum of Art, the Naples Art Museum, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Dayton Art Institute and the Flint Institute of Arts. His work is held in museum collections including the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, OH, the Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, MI Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ his work has also featured in very many international publications including Art and Antiques, Architectural Record, ARTnews, The Asahai Shimbun, Ceramics Monthly, The Chicago Sun Times, Interior Design, The New York Times, Progressive Architecture, Sculpture Magazine, and The Washington Post. Rejigit is also pleased to share his impressive work.
