Barbara Nanning “Bedazzled”
Thursday 24 November 2022 | 6pm – 8pm
Barbara Nanning, one of the most significant glass artists practising today. Over four decades, Nanning’s reputation has grown ever greater, thanks to her imagination, skill and aesthetic acuity, as well as an infinite drive to push the boundaries of what glass can do. Nanning, who trained in ceramics, chose glass as her preferred medium in 1994, for its fluidity, transparency, and dematerialised possibilities. She plays with its unparalleled ability to carry dazzling colour like an abstract expressionist painter, fully exploiting its emotional charge.
In her 40 year career, her practice has evolved from intricate studies of the natural world, to minimalist investigations of colour, and she has worked at every scale, from domestically-sized objects to immense glass panels and sculptures. The purity of her latest work is a testament to the extraordinary depth of her creativity and resolution.
