ART EDIT PRESENTS PIONEERING FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY TO LIVEN UP YOUR WALLS.

Forget neon and bathe your room in the warm amber glow of a Stephen Kane photograph. The photographer first emerged as a name to watch in 2016 when he took his Shift Series – a collection of abstracted neon signs from Shinjuku and the rain-soaked streets of Bangkok – to The Other Art Fair in his hometown of Sydney. His ongoing art project, Lightscapes, retains this fascination with optical illusion while testing the limits of what’s possible with abstract photography and digital image creation.

The magnetic quality of each work is partially explained by Stephen’s choice of materials. Limited edition artworks are printed in a vibrant, ten-colour pigment ink set on archival metallic photographic paper and finished with a 6mm layer of glossy clear acrylic. The frameless hidden hanging system favoured by the artist means the photographs literally seem to float off their surfaces, transforming your home into a vivid and dimensional artscape.
