Obscured Landscape 3


Blown, wheel cut and painted glass
52 H x 21 W x 21 D cm


I use the form or vessel as a three dimensional canvas, as a vehicle to express personal narratives. The paintings reflect my abstract notion of reality as imagery, my latest work relating to "altered landscapes" - abstract views suggesting something hidden.
