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.


The Artist

Keith Sonnier

Born in 1941 in Louisiana, Keith Sonnier graduated from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in Lafayette in 1963 with a Bachelor of Arts, and he received a Master of Fine Arts from Rutgers University (New Jersey) in 1966.
In the 1960s, he was inspired by artists such as Richard Serra and Eva Hesse and their ways of conceiving sculpture, and he took inspiration from Minimalism to create assemblages placed on the ground or fixed to the wall by employing various industrial materials such as metal, rubber foam, glass, cloth as well as salvage objects.
