Sculptor and Professor James White has been creating and exhibiting art using emitted light since the late 1960s. His art is simultaneously a playful interpretation of a dream, and a simple daily experience. For artist James White, emitted light from neon tubes is almost magical, bathing each creation in colorful, emotion-inducing light. Neon (orange-red) and its cousin argon (blue), force an intense conversation with the viewer, sometimes to the point of playfully screaming, “look at me!” Wood, steel, found objects, and an array of other materials also make their way into his sculptures. We’ll talk to James about his process and love for neon. See his work on jameswhitesculptor.com
