Brigitte Kowanz (born in 1957 in Vienna) is one of the most successful established Austrian artists. The medium of light is central to her work. Since the early 1980s she has consistently employed the medium in various ways in works for walls and room installations. Initially there were three-dimensional pictures made of neon lights that gave off a phosphorescent light and appeared to be spatially-expanded paintings. Thus, at the beginning of the 1980s, at a time when the Junge Wilde dominated the art scene with their rather traditionally-defined notions of pictures, Kowanz was setting a future-oriented counter accent.
