Like most art forms, neon bending is a male-dominated field, and Pataky chose artists who have overcome this challenge and create work that stands out. Conceptual content and messaging is key to these artists’ work, stretching beyond neon’s traditional applications and exploring light as an art form.

Thank you Lynn Trimble for featuring my piece, Reincarnation / Osmosis in Phoenix New Times!! I have to say, I can't remember why I said I had any idea of 'what it means to be alive' - I think I have too many existential crises to have a handle on that right now.
