"Cinder 1" from my newest collection of work available through @stephaniechefasprojects
Neon is wild. These straights were made when I took @katehush’s Fluorescent Forms neon bending class at @brooklynglass. They hang above my work desk at home, and to the naked eye, it usually just all glows purple. When you try to capture it through an iPhone, the color changes from hot pink to purple depending on the angle. That’s one of my favorite things about this piece 💜💗 The left unit is purple neon against pink acrylic glass and the right unit is pink neon against purple acrylic glass. They both have purple and pink hairs growing out of the acrylic glass. “Attached at the Hip” Mercury, acrylic glass, false eyelashes (2017) ~Below are some unfinished sculptures, that I will get to eventually~ 🌀 • 🌀 #angelaalba #angelaalbastudio #art #arte #newyorkcity #nycartist #brooklynartist #brooklyn #feminist #feministart #drawing #sculpture #wallsculpture #contemporary #contemporaryart #visualart #fineart #artpractice #emergingartist #neon #neonart #neonlights #neonartist #neonartwork #neonsign #shebends #womenartists #wallart #lasercut
tinier . Been playing around with smaller size text lately, not as tiny as some other pieces, but this does have a max height of 2.25 inches . #neon #neonartist #magenta #glass #brooklyn #nyc #gowanus #brooklynglass #brooklynartist #femaleartist #shebends #studiopractice
I made this tube many moons ago. It combines neon bending with some lampworking techniques and features my “glowing bubbles”. The transformer running it finally died so it’s out of its base while I do some maintenance. #eveningneon #neonart #twirl #glassart #glassbending #arttube #glowingbubbles #redlight #purplelight #argon #rubyred #bromopurple #shebends

Mark your fucking calendars - I'm so pleased to present Roxy Rose |@neogirlneon | as the next "Guest Spot" artist in the windows of Hang Art Gallery |@hangartsf | AUGUST 4TH opening, not to be missed. More about Roxy below. . . . Roxy comes from a long, well-known line of neon fabricators. She made a name for herself and carried her family's business through several successful years before handing ownership over to her daughter. Roxy was well-known in the industry, that is until she transitioned about 10 years ago and then everything changed "I used to get calls every day from people, asking for my advice, my opinion, wanting to work with me. But after I transitioned, people in the industry turned their backs on me. They dropped me like a hot potato. I was kicked out of my business and family. My stuff was brought to the curb, the locks were changed, and passcodes to the alarm system were changed." Following the callous dismissal from the industry, Roxy became determined to prove she was still a relevant figure in the industry who would not be cut out. She has found acceptance among younger generations who view her as someone to be admired, and someone they can learn from. Her astonishing work for SHE BENDS was nothing short of breathtaking. For Roxy, her work is a message about being transgender, while also demonstrating her skill and creativity as a fabricator. Words by @vwi1son for @themidwaygallery

We’d like to introduce #WCW ’s first panelist, although she needs no introduction. @merylpataky is an East Bay artist of many disciplines and mediums but focuses on the relationship between her own hands and materials. Informing her material selection is a meditation on the elements of the periodic table from noble gases to metals to organics. She is currently working on exhibitions in the area as well as curating the all-female exhibit “She Bends” which features female benders from around the world. 📸: @kirbygladstein #brightsidecollective

"Harnessing the overlapping energies of light and dark, this self reflective body of work is a powerful and layered visual metaphor about what happens when art turns into content and the machine we find ourselves in starts to malfunction" - from Alison Green's |@alisondgreen |review of my show for Live Fast Magazine. Link in bio to read in full. Show at @stephaniechefasprojects up until the 28th. Thanks Alison for the wonderfully accurate articulation of what I was going for.

Portland, show is up until the 28th of this month. Gallery |@stephaniechefasprojects | open from 1pm-6pm, Thursday through Saturday. This work speaks about many things. Some of those things stem from a frustration - of Instagram culture, cliches and taboos of the current neon design and art market as well as the problems they create for the industry. Big brands ripping off artists for profit. When a conventional neon transformer begins to die, it leaks tar dripping down its side. Death of neon has almost happened many times. The popularity and demise of neon is cyclical throughout its history. All work is 100% hand bent myself in San Francisco.
I'm so thrilled to formally announce the launch of @radiantneon! * Come September 1, I'll be in my new space making neon light art! * Join me and my partner for the journey of a lifetime. We're so excited and can't wait to carry on the legacy of neon. * Studio time, workshops and gallery events to come! * #artstudio #neon #argon #neoninseattle #learnneon #wip #art #shebends #light #noblegas #sculpure
I woke up with my heart feeling blue and red before my body even clocked that it was over 100 degrees in LA today. Went to @flektro22 shop to bombard this 5mm unit I made last week. As I was about to put the last electrode on, it slipped out of my hand and crashed to the floor. Shattered. Only the A survived... very seriously considered throwing in the towel and calling it a day when I realized what I actually felt like was throwing in the towel on everything. Can’t let a feeling like that stick I decided, so without a word I got in the fires and made a brand new one. Here it is. Part two. 5mm melting ‘what’ aging in. V appropriate. White flag kinda day. Stay cool.
“Trapped, waiting for you” 2018. This masterpiece comes from the talented artist @terebomba 🏄🏾♀️ I was lucky enough to come across her work whilst exhibiting with her in the “she bends” exhibit that has been touring the US. The beauty in her work is evident. #neon #shebends
First EVER one day install. Finishing touches today. . . ."The work has become self-aware. It knows how ubiquitous it is and yet so misunderstood. It knows it will be in pop-culture’s favor for now, as it has seen itself before so many times in its past, but soon fall again when it becomes oversaturated and squeezed for all of its luster, turned to kitsch and trifle through the scramble for profit on a trend. Fossilized in instagram moments, glowing truisms hung over beds, and cliches on nightstands. In every artists portfolio. It’s all been done before, over and over. When a magnetic transformer begins to die, it leaks tar. This motor has been running for a while."
Made in the USA. 💯🤘☠🤘☠🤘☠🤘☠
Let down your hair with me. • July 11th; DEFINING FORM, a new group sculpture show at @untitledspaceny
I embrace my strength. I sculpt my temple. I stretch my mind and body. I put in time, love, passion, and dedication to the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of me being. Every. Damn. Day. Moving my body, challenging it through lifting and Hot Yoga feeds my Soul. I walk into the gym or step onto my yoga mat in the hot room and I’m truly in my happy place! Stress, fear, worry, guilt, anger, anxiety, and sadness melt away with each drop of sweat and every single breath. So no, I don’t do this for attention, I do it to fuel my Mind, Love my Body, Feed my Soul, and Strengthen my Heart. I ❤️ my Strong and Bendy Temple. I embrace my Muscles and Curves. • • "A well built physique is a status symbol. It reflects you worked hard for it, no money can buy it.
