Bruce Nauman Neon...


Much of Nauman's work is characterized by an interest in language, often manifesting itself in a playful and mischievous manner. For example the neon run from fear, or the photograph bound to fail, which literalizes the title phrase and shows the artists hands tied behind his back. They are however, very serious concerns at the heart of Nauman's practise. He seems to be fascinated by the nature of communication and languages inherent problems, as well as the role of the artist as supposed communicator and manipulator of visual symbols.

Run from fear.

One hundred live and Die, 1984

Elusive signs, Paul Nauman works with light.

Mean Clown welcome, Bruce Nauman.
