Jay Shinn

Illuminated Icon #3, 2011

Dallas and New York-based artist Jay Shinn mixes light, projections, metal, and paint in his work. While he uses various mediums in his art, one constant is his exploration of geometric forms. No matter the medium, each piece has a three dimensional quality and really focuses on perspective. I really love his use of light in the pieces and how the repetitious patterns completely draw the viewer in.

His work can be seen at the Marty Walker Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
