»I’M SCULPTRESS. SINCE 1996,
MY MEDIUM OF CHOICE HAS BEEN GLASS – A MATERIAL WITH VIRTUALLY
UNLIMITED VERSATILITY AND EXPRESSIVE POTENTIAL THAT ALLOWS ME TO CONVEY MY EVOLVING ARTISTIC CONCEPTS.«

 

My inspiration is the beauty inherent in nature, f. e. a sunrise, plants, animals, pebbles I find in my garden…

Playing with form, colour and light, I reinterpret with a contemporary approach what has been defined as a medieval ‘aesthetics of light’, based on the visual perception of material things whose luminosity could encounter the luminous nature within the human being.

I am generally interested in genesis and the nature of all, and influence: Philosophical and social approaches, doctrines and systems as well as approaches to a natural scientific comprehension of the world, and to its artistic interpretation.

The objects I create express my observations and thinking in three-dimensional abstractions and metaphors.

I’m working in cycles, exploring an idea, image or allegorical reference through a number of related pieces that provide differing approaches to a natural scientific comprehension of the world, and to its artistic interpretation.

Using medieval glassmaking traditions, I explore the different properties and perceptions of the material, particularly Murano glass.

ABOUT THE USE OF GLASS IN MY ART:

Glass allows me to combine subtle coloration with formed shapes.

OPAQUE GLASS
By removing successive layers at crucial points, I create openings which draw the attention of the eye and the mind to what is going on deep inside the object. Thus to reveal what is hidden from sight behind external appearance.

TRANSPARENT GLASS
As I add successive layers of transparent glass in different colours I can create an almost infinite range of colour effects. The sunlight is focused and reflected by the bulk of the glass, creating a quite remarkable play of light and giving the sculpture different appearances throughout the day.
