This week I am off to Melbourne to attend the inaugural 2014 Kirra Illuminating Glass Award (KIGA).
I decided to submit a piece to this exhibition to expand the spectrum of my practice and the scope of my concepts and constructions. I am happy to say that my entry was accepted and am excited to see the rest of the work in the exhibit. You can catch a sneak peek of all the pieces here.
My work is titled "The Acquisition". It is a mixed media work (wood, glass, metal and light) that is 750mm w x 500mm d x 750mm h.
Here is the quick description that I wrote about the work for the catalog:
"The oscillating glow that emanates from the seemingly solid shape within the sealed and slated wooden shell of The Acquisition is held to a slow and steady rhythm. The continual cadence of the form's inner light animates this simple shipping crate into an active agent of delivery. The exact contents of the crate, their importance and their current condition is unknown. In accordance to its title, The Acquisition may supply an item of desire to be obtained or perhaps this crate might hold within it a metaphoric tool that could lead to the transference of a realization. With every ebb of its interior light, this work quietly asks for patience into the inquiry of how its conveyance will connect and affect the agencies of both its sender and receiver."
The photos of this work were taken by my photographer Rob Little. During his time photographing this piece, he generously shot this quick video of it. Please take a look:
