…and the Gang’s breath away while she’s at it.
Just in from Michael Scarrone is all the scoop on Liz Kelly’s new show at The National Art Glass Gallery in Wagga Wagga…
Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is pleased to show at the National Art Glass Gallery Elizabeth Kelly’s exhibition titled Tangerine Gold.
Elizabeth Kelly’s art practice is currently engaged with the architectural and engineering potential of glass, and the built environment is a major theme in her work. Kelly is interested in how systems and patterns function in construction engineering and has adapted industrial production methods to small-scale studio practice, experimenting with techniques of multiple casting of glass components to make large-scale sculptural forms. She is also interested in exploiting the properties of natural light within these glass structures and colour is a very considered element in the work.
Kelly travelled extensively through Europe and Asia before commencing a full time factory traineeship in glass blowing in 1985 at the Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design Centre in Adelaide. After studying at the Adelaide Centre for the ARTS and the Australian National University School of Art she taught at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney. Directly upon completion of her Masters degree in 1997 she commenced a three-year contract as Head of Glass Workshop at the Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design Centre in Adelaide.
In 2003 Kelly initiated Studio Tangerine in Canberra, a purpose built self funded glass design and sculpture studio where she continues to work.
How fabulous it is.
And, look people, so refreshingly individual – what a concept. With any luck it might catch on (ie that quaint old idea of signature originality/individuality.)
Anyhoo, it’s very cool, and very Liz.
Love the column biz, especially this little number on the right…
…great play on the art historic. We’d snap it up if we had (buckets of) the ready.
More snaps here.
Exhibition runs until January 16th 2011.
