With ties to art movements such as "Op-Art", geometric abstraction, color-field painting and light & space artists, the works in ILLUMINATED invite viewers to expand their perception. A lush lexicon of colors and form abound in this work, transcending description and begging to be experienced in person for full appreciation. Shinn deftly handles his materials, transforming house paint, neon, projected light, plexiglass, and spray paint into singular spatial experiences.
