Rose-Mary Faulkner with her winning work

 

Michael Scarrone from the National Art Glass Gallery at Wagga Wagga has sent the following news….

The 2018 National Emerging Art Glass Prize winner Rose-Mary Faulkner is currently on her art residency in Scotland. Rose-Mary has received an all-expenses-paid trip, two masterclasses and a conference at North Lands Creative Glass facility in Scotland with her work acquired into the National Art Glass Collection, as well as $4000 prize money. North Lands is internationally recognized as the best institute for the study of glass art in Europe.

Lucky Rose-Mary, eh! So, for the interminably curious, Rose-Marys’ journey can be followed via the NEAGP blog link and – for a broader squizz at her practice – go to her website.

Meanwhile for those of you not in the loop, here’s a little background on the winning work…

Rose-Mary Faulkner, Continuum 2017, kiln formed glass and decals

Artist statement:

My current work presents a study of my own body from the restricted, subjective line of sight we have of ourselves, aiming to map the female figure through abstracted and layered photographic imagery in order to analyse form and surface. I investigate ways to observe and experience the body, expressed visually through soft dappled imagery, evocative of feeling and sensation. Exploring decals techniques, I transfer photography to glass with water and heat, combining several related images before further manipulating the surface. Continuum presents a mapping of my form – its shape, folds and colours – and its delicacy is enhanced with a skin like surface and sensation.

 

[Thanks for the headz-up, Mikey. We enjoy following these residency blog feeds. n(Ed)]

Pae White, Qwalala (snaps: Enrico Fiorese)

Installed in 2017 for the BiennaleArte, American artist Pae White has certainly upped the ante on the humble glass brick. Referencing the meandering flow of the Gualala River in California, it’s pretty damn luxe [though must be a bugger to clean! n(Ed)]

Still in situ at the Stanze del Vetro until Nov 2018.

Heart-stoppingly divine.
