Stephen Knapp is an American artist best known as the creator of light paintings, which have been called one of the first new art mediums of the twenty-first century. His sculptural canvases are created entirely with light and glass. His light paintings make visible the light that surrounds us and transforms it into something physical yet inherently transcendental.
These large-scale works utilizes minimal tools, harnessing simply light and Dichroic glass to throw a multitude of colors against the walls and room. These combine to act as a selective prism, separating focused light into different frequencies of the spectrum.
Knapp cuts, shapes and polishes the glass to create a palette that refracts and reflects light onto a surface and the surrounding space. Presenting you to the Prismatic Light Paintings by Stephen Knapp.
