It’s hard to capture the magic of the neon artworks at CAB Foundation in pictures. There must be a chemical or scientific explanation why what we see through our retina is not what the camera captures. The halo is diffused. But how fascinating it is to be around the illuminated drawings...to see how serious and often conceptual artists must have felt seduced by the neon medium. Candy crush!

The gate-keeper, a small blonde sprite-ling spirit sat on Billie’s shoulder saying “I’m sick and tired of your bullshit, you want those sweet lips and oh my god those hips, go on and gag on desire.
Open up I’ll be your tiger, cuz you’re my little survivor / when the roof comes down on you I want you dancing in the fire.
You’ll be the shadow to the gate-keeper, let’s blow those speakers / I’ll tell you when we’ve had enough, I’ll spit and curse and bleed til it’s done.
Don’t be the kid on the doorstep / watching the minute hand waiting to be a man”

"electric bell jar" 2018

electric bell jar is a neon sculptural work that explores physicality and its interpretation. the individual is objectified via representation of self through physicality. the simplification is extended by dissecting the human figure into contours and reconstructed in the neon light of commercial industries. the work mimics the limiting perception of self when applying the lens of our constructed society, the body becoming imprisoned in its own form, by its own definitions. a critique on the hyper sexualisation and objectification of women, or any form of physical based interpretation as reductive to the potential and complexity of the individual.

"hot cell" 2017
emma-kate hart @neon.hart and fernando melendez @fiebre_nietzsche

65 sections of neon filled 8mm clear glass tubing in black acrylic casing

hot cell is an exploration of physicality and its interpretation. a collaborative work between artists fernando melendez and emma-kate hart. fernando draws from his architectural background and dissects a human figure into contours, imprisoning the body in its own form. emma-kate manipulates long pieces of glass to construct the contours and then fills each section with neon gas, an energy contained within the walls of the glass itself. an illuminated work that alludes to a commercial red light district, cutting the body, in film-noir fashion, into lines of light. a femme fatale of sorts, the piece aims to use the symbolism of pop culture to draw attention to the limitations of objectification, both culturally and self-imposed. in its essence, it is a bell jar, blocking the millions of pathways for energy potential from passing through the skin. it is a dystopian vision of how we treat and perceive the potentials of humanity.
