FAWKES Sally, guest artist for the exhibition, Ce que peut le verre

My sculptures explore the intersection of the intangible and the physical.
Working primarily in cast glass, my sculptures present possibilities of experience between the boundaries of the visible and invisible blur; the place where everything is potential. The use of the mirror reveals another dimension in my work. The Latin word
"mirror", "speculum", gives us the verb "to speculate".


The viewer's imagination is taken on an intense visual journey exploring the luminous glass volumes living with changing images, undulating through the physicality of their space.
