Paint Torch

Paint Torch is a permanent outdoor sculpture by Claes Oldenburg.

In 2010, Oldenburg and I met to discuss ways to elegantly incorporate technology and illumination within his proposed piece The Paint Torch. He had been inspired by some of my artwork, in particular, several illuminated pieces I created with Kreysler and Associates. We began working together almost immediately, spending over 12 months developing the subtle, yet elegant internal ‘glow’ you now see within the piece.
