This piece, from musician-turned-artist, Brian Eno hails from his 2016 exhibition and subsequent book, Light Music - a collection of lightboxes, lenticulars, drawings, photographs and etchings from Eno, demonstrating his lifelong fascination with light.
The book features an essay in which Eno recalls his first memory of being astounded by light at the hands of Disney movie. He writes: ‘I have no recollection of what we saw: but what I do remember, even now, was the visceral impact of that intensity of colour’.
Over the course of his career, Eno has chased the answer to the question, ‘how can you control light?’ His exploration has led him to create increasingly grand art installations, culminating in 77 Million Paintings, a projection covering The Sydney Opera House in 2009.
Of the Light Music collection, Eno remarks: 'I have been trying to slow music down so it becomes more like painting, and to animate paintings so they become more like music.'
Agate 2016 is an etching print with deckled edges. From a limited edition of 100, the piece is signed, dated, and numbered by the artist.

About the artist
Brian Eno began his creative career as the synthesizer player in Glam Rock group Roxy Music. Eno departed the band after two successful albums and went on to become a successful solo artist. As a music producer he has been behind many of the great records from David Bowie, Talking Heads, U2 and Coldplay.
Despite calling himself a ‘non-musician’, it has been argued that Eno has ‘forever altered the ways in which music is approached, composed, performed, and perceived’. One producer and film composer even called him, ‘the most influential artist since The Beatles,’ and in 2019 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Outside of music, Eno has carved out a reputation as a visionary, humanitarian activist, philosopher, writer and visual artist. His installations feature light as a medium explored in multi-screen configurations, and music that is created to blur the boundaries between itself and its surroundings.
When asked about his approach to art, Eno states: ‘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’.
