Abstract

I am hoping to create several glass panels for an upcoming exhibition that include both intrinsic glass color and an additional applied coating that make defining the actual color of the panel elusive. These panels would be cut and shaped to mimic oversized sunglass lenses as part of an ongoing series of mine that examines the ways we see (or don’t see) glass. This project is part my continuing interest in using traditional glass techniques to make work with a contemporary commentary on the uses of glass and its role as a mediator in modern culture. This project follows two recent exhibitions and I have another exhibition in the offing; it is essential in the art field to be constantly producing new work so the projected outcome of this creative activity would be producing a new body of work for upcoming exhibition opportunities.
