The public works of Michael Flechtner can be seen in Tokyo, Los Angeles and Minneapolis. In 2010, the artist was commissioned to design a postage stamp for the USPS known as the Celebrate! stamp.
Linda Sue Price creates mixed media neon sculpture using abstract shapes. The shapes are bent free form, not using a pattern, making each tube unique. Abstract forms are used as a way to see neon differently.
“I like to mix form, light, reflection and texture. I do this by layering and adding other elements such as clear acrylic rods and reflective backgrounds. While the viewer cannot know the simple and sometimes complex stories behind each piece, they can reconsider their perceptions of neon and the world around them. When I look at a neon tube, I don’t see a sign even if it is. I see a luminous glow. I want to share the beauty and playfulness of neon.” Linda Sue Price
