About this work of Art
Michael Wallner – ‘River of Light’
Neon installation, 2017, limited edition of 10 (Signed on the back).
I have always gravitated towards the river ever since I moved to London. I love everything about it – it’s tranquility, it’s bustling personality and it’s beautiful, instantly recognizable shape. It is the lifeblood of the city.
The cobalt blue neon traces the shape of the river Thames from Chiswick to Woolwich. The neon has slightly darkened edges mimicking the shoreline.
To add to it’s urban appeal it is attached to reclaimed wooden planks with a rusted steel edging and industrial hooks for hanging. These have been bleached and left in the sun for several days to make sure they are the perfect colour to contrast with the vivid blue of the neon.
Please note: this piece is made to order. It can usually be created and delivered in around 3-4 weeks.
