Neon Black is a series created to immerse the viewer in retro-futurism by shaping an atmospheric experience through painting. It illustrates a sequence of landscapes, which transmute a form of Xanadu from a seperate observable plane. As the inspiration behind this work is the retro-futuristic styling of the eighties, the further development of their design is achieved through the use of fluorescent lighting. This aspect of the design bridges the gap between painting and light, and invites the viewer to explore the vastness of the Neon Black world.
