Last night we had our ‘Neon Wonderland’ group show opening at our Shepherd Market gallery. The opening was a huge success and we are incredibly proud of our wonderful Neon darlings. The show is now on until 12th April, so if you haven’t had the opportunity to see it yet, make sure you do before its too late!
Since neon’s commercial inception by French chemist George Claude, the noble gas has captured many a gaze. But it was the works of Bruce Nauman in the 70’s and, more recently, Tracey Emin, which has brought about the next loving phase of neon artworks, establishing neon as a must-have for many contemporary art collectors.
Like moths to a flame, viewers find themselves hypnotised and drawn into the light, with the message of each work ingrained in the viewers’ mind more so than that of any other medium. Continuing deeper Down The Rabbit Hole to the realm of the neon darlings, Imitate Modern brings you ‘Neon Wonderland’ a group show of predominantly London based female artists in honour of Women’s Month. We will be showcasing British talent working with a medium that crosses the boundaries of scientific principles and artistic expression, whilst comparing the physical fragility of the glass tubes themselves to that of our societal ideologies.
