Neon Skulls: New works by Eric Franklin.

Photos: Eric Franklin.

The American artist, Eric Franklin, makes skulls that are internally lit with neon. Three of his latest creations are shown here.

The process employed by the artist creates physical distortions of the skull form which when illuminated by the indistinct gas gives a beautiful, intriguing and otherworldly quality to the work.

At a technical level each skull fiendishly complex to make. Inside are glass tubes that, although are distorted by heat in the process of making, are perfectly sealed to create the necessary chambers that contain the gas.

Pieces can be purchased through Artworks Gallery.


Gratitude to This is Colossal.
