27-year-old artist Lana Newstrom says she is the first artist in the world to create invisible “art.” In a documentary, “This is That,” traveled to her empty studio to learn more about Lana and her unusual artistic process.
“Just because you can’t see anything, doesn’t mean I didn’t put hours of work into creating a particular piece”

“Art is about imagination and that is what my work demands of the people interacting with it. You have to imagine a painting or sculpture is in front of you,” says Newstrom.
Paul Rooney, Lana’s agent, believes she might be the greatest artist alive working today: “When she describes what you can’t see, you begin to realize why one of her invisible works can fetch upwards of a million dollars.” said Rooney.
