Catalogue Note

“Three main aspects of Flavin’s work are the fluorescent tubes as the source of light, the light diffused throughout the surrounding space or cast upon nearby surfaces, and the arrangement together or placement upon surfaces of the fixtures and tubes. The lit tubes are intense and very definite. They are very much a particular visible state, a phenomenon. The singleness of isolation of phenomena is new to art and highly interesting.”
Donald Judd in Exh. Cat., Ottawa, National Gallery of Canada, flourescent light, etc. from Dan Flavin, p. 27
