Artist Peter Bynum creates his vibrantly lit-up painting series as a way to better involve his viewers and draw them in like moths to a flame.

He paints his captivating abstract patterns onto sheets of tempered glass. Stacking these glass canvasses together creates a single piece that is full of dimension and movement, with a design that shifts slightly every time a viewer changes their perspective. Flat-panel LEDs are installed behind the final pieces, casting the colors into silhouettes, enhancing the artwork with another visual stimulator. The lights are connected to a dimmer system so each viewer can create a customized experience for each painting, choosing how bright or dim the light is.

In his lit-up painting series, Peter Bynum sets the stage for light and color to interact with the audience.
