Untitled - Transgression Series

formed, screen printed and hand carved glass
20 H x 80 W x 6 D cm

This new body of work is primarily concerned with where the sublime and the ominous intersect. The content questions where the boundaries lie between beauty, danger, vulnerability and control. The tactile qualities of glass are combined with photo and print media to create works that talk about sensuality and fragility.

Photographer: Michael Bradfield
