ALL THE LIGHT YOU SEE, 2017
Photograph taken by Ryan Strand Greenberg This flashing neon sign was original installed on the roof of a derelict building in Philadelphia. It cycles through the statements “All the light you see is from the past” and “All you see is past” before turning off completely. It speaks to the fact that light takes time to travel, so by the time it reaches your eyes, everything you are seeing is technically already in the past. The farther out into space we look, the farther back in time we can see.
Alicia Eggert is an American artist based in Texas whose work focuses on the relationship between language, image and time. The motivation behind most of her work is a sincere desire to understand the linear, finite and fleeting nature of human life within a cyclical and seemingly infinite universe. Her artwork often takes the form of flashing neon signs that inspire a sense of wonder. The signs are installed and photographed in different locations around the world, allowing each site to uniquely influence the work’s meaning. Alicia’s artworks have been exhibited internationally, at venues such as the CAFA Art Museum in Beijing, the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, the Amsterdam Light Festival in Amsterdam, and Galeria Fernando Santos in Porto, Portugal.

Skip the trip to the framer and let ArtStar do the work with our One Click Framing.
Choose from our high-end white, black or natural frames, or opt for a more modern look by selecting facemounted to thick Plexiglas.
All frames include:
- UV-blocking acrylic glass, which protects against 91% of UV rays.
- Acid-free, archival mats and materials.
- Taped backs to prevent dust from getting into the frame.
- Strainers on the back to reinforce the structure of the frame.
- Wire on the back of the frame for easy installation.
- Facemounted works are hung on a metal French cleat. Installation instructions are included in the packaging.
Extra small and small frames have .75" molding 2" mats, and are 1.2" deep. Medium and large frames have 1" molding, 3" mats and are 2" deep. Mattless frames have a spacer to prevent the print from touching the acrylic.
We do not frame the extra large print sizes because they are too large to ship without risking damage.
