Peter Bynum: Illuminated Paint

New York Public Library: The 5th Avenue Windows | 2014 |

“PETER BYNUM OPENS NEW TERRITORY FOR PAINTING by exposing paint’s intrinsic branching behavior, and then illuminating the complex nervous system it creates. The three-dimensional, illuminated paintings on glass, with biomorphic forms swimming in light and space, are full of cosmic energy and ecstatic beauty.”

– AREZOO MOSENI, Host, “The New York Public Library’s Artist Lecture Series”

Curated by Arezoo Moseni, this solo exhibition includes 17 site-specific paintings created for the Library’s 5th Avenue windows. Illuminated 24/7 for nine months, an estimated 9 million people viewed the exhibition.
