Keith Sonnier (b. 1941, Mamou, LA) radically reinvented sculpture in the late 1960s. Sonnier has experimented with materials as varied as latex, satin, bamboo, found objects, satellite transmitters, and video. In 1968, the artist began working with neon, which quickly became a defining element of his work. His prints and multiples made for Graphicstudio reflect his interest in sculpture, everyday materials, scientific inquiry and technology, as well as our systems of language and communication.
