TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art, auction to benefit amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research and the Dallas Museum of Art, October 26, 2013;
Private collection, Texas, acquired from the above.
Shinn is most known for work engaged in space, light and optics. In this neon work a folded simple geometric transparent image hovers in space with a glowing halo - a beautiful contradiction in that the most solid presence of the work exist through its translucency.
Among many public installations, Shinn recently completed two large-scale projected light installations at George Bush Intercontinental Airport's International Terminal in Houston, Texas. His work is exhibited and in collections in the US and Europe.
In good working condition; no apparent issues.
