Join curator, writer and cultural producer Margaret Hancock Davis in conversation with glass artists from both Interior Landscapes and Morph in the gallery for a floor talk that will explore this year's Ausglass conference theme 'Futures Past'.
Interior Landscapes presents seven leading Australian glass artists exploring narratives of the Australian landscape and its influence on an evolving cultural identity. Diverse in approach, aesthetics and techniques, each artist has spent decades immersed in studying this striking geography to inform a unique and innovative language in glass.
Morph showcases a series of silvered-glass sculptures exploring light, reflection and perception by established Melbourne glass artist, Mark Douglass. Each piece is hand-blown and shaped to best work with the properties of convex and concave mirrors. Inspired by the morphing metal-man known as T-1000 in Terminator 2, Douglass has been evolving this series of work since the early 90's.
The floor talk will be hosted in the gallery 5:30-6pm, and followed by a public opening event for both exhibitions 6-8pm.
