Artists of light, color and space

For those of us who love light and architecture, James Turrell (1943, USA) and Olafur Eliasson (1967, Denmark and Iceland) are two of the best creators of light installations and artwork. Light, color and space are the elements they use to play with people's perception.

Look here some of their works and tell me if they manage to captivate you with these creations full of light and color. If so, imagine what it is to visit and see them in person!

    I had never seen Eliasson’s work, but I really like how intricate is is. The detail and colors remind me of when I visited the Gaudi House!

    Interesting photos of art and light combination. Must say the pic of SUNRISE (2012) one with rail road and distant view of sun looks naturally real. I scroll many times to find out it was art work. Thank you for sharing

    I am not an art critic or an expert but I sure can appreciate good art like this! I love seeing how artists express their creativity through their art!
