Keith Sonnier is a contemporary American artist known for his pioneering light sculptures. Employing materials such as latex, neon, and found objects, Sonnier achieves a drawing-like quality with his sculptures. “I love light in my work but I was never influenced by neon signage in itself, rather its effect on nature and architecture,” he has explained. Born on July 31, 1941 in Mamou, LA, he received his BA from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in 1963, and his MFA from Rutgers University in 1966. It was during his time at Rutgers, that Sonnier fell under the influenced of Robert Morris. By the late 1960s, he along with his peers Bruce Nauman and Dan Flavin, had begun employing neon tube lights in their work. Over the years, he has incorporated materials used by other cultures into sculptural installations. Sonnier currently lives and works between New York, NY and Bridgehampton, NY. Today, his works are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, among others.

Biography:

Noted for her strong abstract compositions and particular skill with colors, Rose Kuper used many media, ranging from oil paintings, watercolors, etchings, lithographs, collages, monoprints, crayon impressions, ink and others. Her style ranged from realist in the beginning through abstract impressionism. Her most original contribution has been the use of printers' ink on the reverse of glass, culminating in a solo show at the Corning Museum of Glass, New York.

Born October 9, 1888, in Riga Latvia, Rose Kuper moved at the age of six months with her family to London, where she lived until the age of 5, when they came to New York City. She became primarily a New York City artist, belonged to the Manhattan Group, although she also did much painting in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She was active with the Brooklyn Art Association, the Art Students League and the National Association of Women Artists, which she served on the Executive Board from 1951 to 1954. She was also an instructor in the New York public schools and was married to Theodore Kuper. In New York, she earned a B.A. Degree at Hunter College and studied with Abstract Expressionists Hans Hoffmann and Abraham Rattner. Her first teacher was Teresa Bernstein, with whom she studied in 1927. Kuper began as an independent artist with a painting trip to Brittany in 1930, and ended with a retrospective show at the Whittier Museum in October, 1984. In between, she gained representation in the permanent collections of seventeen public institutions: colleges, museums and libraries, and had 18 one-artist exhibitions. Despite the fact that many of her works are abstract, there is always emotional content. She has used the themes of motherhood, moods of the desert, "Huddled Masses", celebration of the carousel, and others. Rose Kuper died in 1987, at the age of 99, in Whittier, California.

She is in permanent collections of: Riverside Museum, New York City Hunter College, New York City Art Museum, San Diego, CA Philbrook Art Center, Tulsa, OK Museum of Art, Dallas, TX Jewish Museum, New York City The Light House for the Blind, Israel Fashion Institute of Technology, New York City Long Island University, L.I.
