Brian Eno: Let There Be Light

Brian Eno paints with light. And his paintings, like the medium, shift and dance like free‐flowing jazz solos or elaborate ragas. In fact, they have more in common with live music than they do with traditional artwork. “When I started working on visual work again, I actually wanted to make paintings that were more like music”, he says. “That meant making visual work that nonetheless changed very slowly”. Eno has been sculpting and bending light into living paintings for about 25 years, rigging galleries across the globe with modified televisions, programmed projectors and three‐dimensional light sculptures.
