Sculpture Center Portfolio 1995
Keith Sonnier constructs his distinctive abstract and semi-figurative light installations out of neon tubing. Often labeled a Minimalist, Sonnier places bright colors and sparse lines together in ways that heighten the lights’ reflective qualities in a given space. Inspired by both his birthplace of Louisiana and the cultures and geographies he encounters in his travels, Sonnier’s sculptures combine hi-tech industrial materials with organic or corporeal themes. For his “Herd” series (2009), Sonnier used lights and curved steel supports to create free-standing animal sculptures resembling the wildlife found in Africa.
