Great art pulls me out of my daily life and into a whole new frame of reference.  Add intense color and the experience of awesome art can be a phase-shift for my brain, body and spirit.  Works like Mark Lovejoy’s awesome swirls are a gleaming tactile fun-house of color and depth that act as a “restart” button for my imagination.  Here are 5 more artists I newly-love, who, like Lovejoy, spin some fantasy and passion into my life with color.

We all know how much I love color wheels and kaleidoscopes, and in neon all the more. Add in a bit of bendy tubing and the hard lines become soft, fragile and pliable.

Lee Jung’s landscapes with neon text are hauntingly poignant, and richly vibrant in both meaning and material.

Live with more art. Touch it when you can. Stare at it.  Make it. Buy it. Experience it.  Its beautiful magic! xoxo Dana
