PRLog - March 23, 2012 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland, OR -- An art movement, called luminous art, started over a century ago. Yet, it is just now hitting the news. Developed early in the 1900’s, along with impressionism and cubism, little has been documented about this marvelous art culture or it’s artists. For the first time in history, noted luminous artist Gary Fenske, unveils this lost era in his new book “The Secret World of Invisible Art” (114 pp., $29.95)
He first saw fluorescing art in New York City in 1958. “Life often sets you on an unknown path that controls your destiny. That is the beauty of it. Every turn opens up fresh opportunities that lead to new adventures,”
Honing his talents for over 50 years, Fenske became noted as the master of luminism. First revealing how fluorescing pigments were discovered, he then discloses the illustrious past of invisible fine art. Share his passionate efforts and personal struggles as he tries to preserve the art movement from obscurity. This full-color book is packed with paintings from Fenske’s private invisible art collection. You will see, through his eyes, the fascinating history and nuances of an almost forgotten art form.
Gary Fenske’s "Night Visions"® luminous paintings are among the treasured pieces of art collected by President Bill Clinton, the former ‘King of Pop’ Michael Jackson. His exhibits have toured throughout Japan, Monaco, Dubai and in China.
