meditations on colour and form
June 14 – September 8
“The idea of playing with light and colours has always been intriguing to me. I began my arts career as a photographer and painter on canvas. Using the skills and concepts of a photographer and painter I then began to transfer some of those skills and concepts into the design and fabrication of glass including the combination of canvas and carved plexi-glass. As a photographer and painter, I was very inspired by how light could be manipulated and played with as part of the artistic process. In working with the medium of glass I have had the opportunity to develop a very strong understanding and respect for the many aspects of light. Working with light and color has taken me into deeper realms of creative process. I’m inspired by the natural world, poetry and music.”
