Stephen Knapp believes in the power of pure color and light. Though he describes his art as “light painting”, these brilliant light installations were created without any actual paint whatsoever. It’s all refracted white light and glass. Imagine the effects of a shattered rainbow being dumped haphazardly into an art gallery and you’ll have a pretty accurate mental image of being in the same room with one of the mind-blowing installations. These light paintings allow you to interact with otherwise unreachable color spectrums.
