ABOUT CONCEPUTAL ART

Conceptual art is Neon O'clock Works main projects
which they produce 1-2 pieces annually under specific themes.
Firstly they get inspirations from art, fashion, music, performances,
films and the environment that surrounds them and expand
their idea and create it into a form.
In the basis of their creation there is always a sense of beauty.
They find beauty in the elements of the world and that helps
motivate themselves to start a new project.
Sometimes photography can be the best medium to express the idea...
or the other time they also produces a short film when
they want a little bit of narrative and sound track to tell a story.
So they utilize mixed media for conceptual art.
It is the process of visualizing / recording the mental changes
frequently happening inside them.
