Currently, I have work in two exhibitions. One here in Australia and one in America.
The show in Australia is that of the finalists for this year's Tom Malone Prize that is held and exhibited at The Art Gallery of Western Australia. The show is called Luminous: Tom Malone Prize 2016. It is an honor to be selected and included in the line up of artists and be considered a finalist for this award. The piece that I entered is called Built in Layers and is a sheet glass and fabricated steel work that comments on the development of history and the construction of the artwork's multi-panel image as items that are built in layers. Here are a couple full images:
The other work that I have currently on display is part of a show in Columbia, Missouri in the United States. The gallery that has invited me to include work in this small group show is called the Sager Braudis Gallery. My two works are both earlier glass pieces that are inspired by shipping forms that address perceived worth and commodification as well as the desire to receive the un-deliverable. Here are images of both:
In a previous post, I mentioned that American Craft was running an article that included an image of my work. The article has been put online and is available to view here.
Although I am not specifically mentioned in the article (it has to do with a more over-arching topic), there are a couple images of my work in the corresponding photo gallery of artists work related to the topic. Although it is a small part, it is still nice to be included and considered in the field.
As well, the winner of the Tom Malone Prize 2014 has been named. It was Mel Douglas for her work Camber.
I was lucky enough to be a finalist once again for this prize (for one of my Barrel Series works--seen below). I had no expectations of winning the prize since it has never been my luck. In fact, I am always genuinely surprised and happy if I am selected at all to be included or chosen as a finalist.
