Regine Schumann: Art that Glows

Light, Lumen installations, contemporary artLight, Lumen installations, contemporary artLight, Lumen installations, contemporary artGerman artist Regine Schumann lives and works in Cologne. Her most recently exhibited installation was Dreamteam last month at Art Santa Fe 2011. In this collaboration with Alberto Frei, Schumann combined fluorescent acrylic spheres with a grid of compelling black & white photographic portraits in a black box environment (top four photos.)

In all of her installations and works, Regine Schumann plays with color, transparency and light. Most of her work — from translucent acrylic or glass pieces to flexible plastic woven works — is typically displayed under black light creating an aura or glow around each piece and onto the nearby surfaces. In some cases where fluorescent works are involved, they emit enough of a radiant quality that allows them to be displayed in normal daylight.
