Glass Jars

I am working on a series that reminds me of my work with "A Safe Place", known to many as my master's degree work. and I am currently showing until September 30, 2023, at Arts Visalia.


See the show WED-Thurs 12-5 PM at Arts Visalia... (made with CANVA)



More about "GLASS JARS"

Glass is a fascinating concept, created by high heat and melted and molded to be created. The sand, or clay must be melted so hot that it burns red and turns into a melty-like substance.

In creating a vision through this magnificent material, glass, I create a found object behind or inside and through the bottom of the jar. The found object is "housed", safe, and secured in the bottom of the glass.

"Seeing Through Me" indicates vulnerability by the confines of death, but illuminated, here the beauty of the wings still shines brilliantly in the glass. The wings are still capable and seeing through the glass gives them the flight of dreams.

Research:


Geoffrey Chaucer’s “Troilus and Criseyde” “’Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’ is used to remind people not to criticize others for a flaw that you yourself possess.” Not a Pistache or parody in terms of copying the famous proverb, but in terms of delving deeper into the meaning of what kinds of emotions lie within the liminal space in the glass. The liminal, the ______

This series has been completed for now, but I feel as though the subject will remain open in my mind.
