Brian Eno is an English musician, composer, record producer and visual artist known as one of the principal innovators of ambient music and generative painting. He joined Roxy Music as synthesiser player in 1971. Leaving in 1973 to record a number of solo albums, coining the term ‘ambient music’ to describe his work on releases such as Another Green World (1975), Discreet Music (1975), and Music for Airports (1978).
As a visual artist he has been exhibiting regularly since the late 1970’s. His work is dedicated almost exclusively to the possibilities that the medium of light provides. In 2009, Eno was given the very rare invitation to exhibit on the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House in Australia, achieved by using powerful projectors to throw the light across Circular Quay.
His current body of work includes light boxes, etchings and lenticular printing as well as sculptural and sound works. His light boxes seamlessly phase through combinations of seductive self-generated ‘colourscapes’ using a series of interwoven LED lights. Eno writes, “I’ve been trying to slow music down so it became more like painting, and to animate paintings so that they became more like music…in the hope that the two would fuse in the middle”.
Michael Bracewell in his essay for Eno’s ‘Light Music’ book, 2017, describes Eno’s art as “a space for the contemplation of individual experience”, where one is “encouraged to engage with a sensory/aesthetic experience that reflects the ever-changing moods and randomness of life itself”, and likens “the call of Eno’s art to that of, for instance, Matisse or Rothko at their most enfolding”.
