Neon makes me happy. It’s bright and cheerful and I love it in my wardrobe and in my art collection. It is especially significant now that our beautiful fall weather is about to give way to the dreariness of a rain-soaked Vancouver winter. Pull out the neon!
The first photo above is of my magnificent oil on canvas “Pigs Can Fly” by Vancouver artist and activist, the great Tiko Kerr. This piece was from his very inspired 2010 exhibition titled “Lush Life”. I feel privileged to call Tiko a friend. Check out www.tikokerr.com for more.
The second photo is of a fascinating piece of art – a 12 inch squared neon plexiglass box – that I picked up at a charity auction in 2010.
