Lightsome is the first retrospective after the artist’s death last summer. Well over than sixty works, from the 1960s to the present, provide insight into the diversity of the artist’s various periods of creative endeavor.
The title Lightsome alludes to Sonnier’s most renowned works: the numerous neon creations that have come to characterize his oeuvre. However, this exhibition intends to show that Sonnier was a decidedly open and undogmatic artist and that there is a lot more to discover beyond his light works.
