Neon is everywhere in cities, rather ironically used to draw attention to a given space in a sea of similar lights. Playing on the pervasive nature of the material, Nashville-bred artist Olivia Steele uses neon in installations to charge them with distinctive emotional messaging. Exclamations like “Wish You Were Here” and “Let’s Get Lost” on images of bombings and a bush of greenery (respectively) add a sharp, poignant wit to everyday found objects, blurring the line between interior and exterior. Check out an example of Steele’s work above and learn more about the artist here.
