Kristin McIver is an Australian artist based in Brooklyn. Her work ranges from sculpture, to painting and installations.
Her neon installations are particularly thought-provoking, and are notable for their subtle ironic undertone, and somewhat comic sensibility. McIver utilises techniques on the same wave length as commercial advertising, manipulating the emotions to have a 'more than meets the eye' effect. Bold, colourful slogans in isolated locations cause us to reflect on the true meaning of what the artist is trying to say.
McIver’s work has been said to "exposes the false realities imposed by urban indoctrination." You might think that's a deep way to look at a pretty lights, but then art is always a bit of a convoluted deal, and the pieces are undeniably thought provoking. Mad props to you, McIver.
