Recognized for his suggestive use of fluorescent lights, Iván Navarro makes works rich in both art-historical and social references. Though his use of light bulbs invites comparison to Minimalism, particularly the art of Dan Flavin, Navarro’s work is conceptually quite different. He uses industrial materials to represent recognizable subjects, as with Armory Fence (2011), where he constructs a picket fence with white fluorescent tubing, calling critical attention to the object that has come to epitomize an idealized suburban lifestyle.
