Are you familiar with Dallas area light artist Jay Shinn? Jay is a light artist – his medium is light. He is amazing at communicating within his chosen medium – which is a mix of light, paint, projections, sometimes geometry on several dimensions, and his work evokes a kind of transcendental peace when you view it; you can get lost in Jay’s work for a long time. It’s hard to really nail down a style to Jay Shinn’s work, although it can be spread across the fields of several artists using paint and light. To me, Jay Shinn’s work evokes feelings of a modern-day Dan Flavin, depth and focus like the work of Josef Albers, geometry that evokes Fritz Glarner‘s work, with the subtlety of Kazimir Malevich.
I’m going to be interviewing Jay soon, so look for the interview to hit JimOnLight.com soon!
I had the pleasure of attending this opening with Rick and Adri Hutton of InLight Gobos, who have been doing gobo work for Jay for a while now. Such a fun time had by all!
Check out some of Jay’s work from that night, and click on one of the thumbnails below for a gallery view of the entire set of photos!
