I work with traditional Venetian glass cane techniques and for these works, I have used mirrored surfaces to further illustrate this idea of distortion. Creating patterned and distorted images of the viewer and their surroundings, I see a connection with Yayoi Kusama’s polka dot paintings and mirrored ‘Infinity Rooms’, and her notion of ‘self-obliteration’. These surfaces invite the viewer to engage with the work, and to contemplate the self and our place in the universe. The colours I have used have been influenced by the colour fields in Light and Space artist Craig Kauffman’s acrylic works. Moving away from my usual graphic use of black cane, in these pieces I have embraced softer, two- toned colours.
