The Museum of Neon Art (MONA) is proud to announce “Oliver Nowlin: Lightning’s Lung,” on display February 24, 2023 through August 27th, 2023.
Oliver Nowlin’s work mines his personal narrative and diverse interests. He abstracts stories from his life by conveying them through geometric forms, texture, color, mark-making, and light. The found objects that Nowlin occasionally integrates into his sculptural form (cardboard packaging and beer can decals) are transformed through sculptural and painterly interventions. Inspirations for the works range from his time in the Navy during the Vietnam war; his family; when he witnessed lightning hitting the ground while camping as a child; his time fishing along the LA River; and his son.
On view: February 24, 2023 – August 27, 2023
