Sabbia Gallery, Sydney, Australia 30 January - 28 February 2015
Sabbia Gallery’s co-director Anna Grigson originally developed this series in 1996 when holding the position of curator at Sydney’s prestigious Quadrivium Gallery as a way to showcase the ground-breaking artwork being created by Australia and New Zealand’s glass artists. Over the last twenty years this exhibition has become one of this country’s most important annual surveys of contemporary studio glass.
Each year there is a different curatorial premise which allows the participating artists to experiment with their practice. In 2015 six Australian and New Zealand artists working in glass have been invited to create artwork that expresses their own personal interpretation of a specific colour. They have been given carte blanche to create new and innovative artwork that is sculptural or installation based.
The artists invited to exhibit are Galia Amsel (NZ), Christine Cathie (NZ), Matthew Curtis (AUS), Mel Douglas (AUS), Nick Mount (AUS) and Tom Rowney (AUS).
The colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. My colour is yellow, and I chose to represent the sun with three pieces - Morning, Midday and Sunset.
Midday, cast lead crystal, acid etched and polished.
