Castled Void

Stephen Knapp's avatar Stephen Knapp

Layers of shadow, textures and change and how they affect our perception of an object has long been a fascination. Research into materials and techniques has been a constant in my work. Out of these processes and interests have come "Lightpaintings," in which I separate white light into pure color and paint with light. Each piece has a presence that far exceeds its physical dimensions. Glass allows me to manipulate and explore light and illusion, creating pure colors. I revel in their purity, their breathtaking richness – yet I am most drawn to the edges and the soft shadows that overlay a whisper of color and the borders that define space. It is here that mystery and depth and wonder can be found. Perception and interaction lead to an act of mutual discovery, a universal bond of our existence. There is no right answer hidden within each piece, only a shared journey.
