Regine Schumann: Luminous Light Art


German artist Regine Schumann explores the interaction between colour, light, materials and space in her artwork. Her wall and floor installations are mainly created using a range of fluorescent and photo-luminescent acrylic glass, or UV-active Plastilight strings. These materials allow the artist to construct geometric and smoothly arched forms, as well as glowing crocheted sculptures.

Her pieces can be viewed in daylight, artificial light or for outstanding effect, in complete darkness when illuminated by a black light. Ultraviolet light transforms the pieces into radiant colourscapes. Schumann’s ongoing Colourmirror series of phosphorescent paint works are currently on display at the De Buck Gallery in New York.
