Deriving inspiration from his studies of light, color, dimension, space, and perception, artist Stephen Knapp has created an eighty-foot multi-dimensional composition of light in the Boise Art Museum's Sculpture Court. The artist’s site-specific Lightpainting embodies a unique and original form of art that integrates sculptural, architectural and visual elements to transform the environment. This exhibition is the third exhibition featured in BAM’s Threads of Perception Series.
Lightpaintings are an outgrowth of Knapp’s longtime interest in various media including photography, ceramics, and kiln-formed glass. In his work he achieves the perceptual presence of such artists as Robert Irwin and James Turrell. Recent exhibitions have been presented at the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio , and the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia
