2008 Finalist

Desire #1

Kiln formed glass
48 H x 100 W x 5 D cm

In this new series of work I combine photography, digital manipulation, screenprinting and kiln forming techniques to create glass works which seek to engage the viewer in a suggestive visual narrative. Images of nature contrasted against dream-like urban-scapes explore a sense of yearning for place and meaning, inherent in the experience of modern societies.

Photographer: Greg Piper
