The exhibition features works from a number of different series including ‘Gilded Youth,’ ‘Electric Flowers,’ ‘Signs’ and ‘Shadows’. Variously, these works give sculptural expression to the seductive pleasures of sun, sea, sand and skin that are enjoyed the world over, or re-invent neon as sculpture, or explore the joys of language.
