Biography   Dan Flavin


/ FLAY-vin /    click to hear
Born in New York City, Dan Flavin created sculpture from everyday, industrial fluorescent lights and fitments. With shadows cast, they become something unto themselves---patterns of light, color and line---removed from the artist.

He served in the meteorological branch of the United States Air Force and then at the National Weather Analysis Center. He participated in four sessions on painting at the Hans Hofmann School in New York in 1956, studied art history at Columbia University, and at the New School for Social Research. His sculpture concentrates on the placement of fittings that produce light within the work. He died in New York in 1996.
