REVERIE- GLASS ART INSPIRED BY SELF-PORTRAITURE
“Reverie – Glass Art Inspired by Self-Portraiture”
A self-portrait is a impression of an artist that is drawn, painted, illustrated, or sculpted by an artist. Even though self-portraits have been made since early ages, it was during the Early Renaissance in the mid-15th century that artists can be seen to be depicting themselves as either the main subject, or as central characters in their work.
Alongside that, better and cheaper mirrors, plus the advent of the panel portrait, allowed painters, sculptors and artists to explore forms of self-portraiture.
24 CGS artists help us explore the subject, and the result is a range of strong and bold expression from our member artists.

The Intagibility of Sorrow
Photographer: Ester Segarra
Details: Kiln formed glass with ceramic transfer
Grief is something that can’t be touched yet is felt in the heart. Impalpable sadness, something that can’t be discarded, unlike the wetness of tears. Memories, obscured as if by a veil, softened and tonally distorted by the passing of time.

A lost wax casting created through the rhythmic manipulation of molten wax in a mould.

As I foretold you, were all spir

The Tipping Point
Photographer: Roberta De Caro
Details: Cast glass
This work depicts a moment of loss of control as the knitted wool is in the process of slipping out of the tidy structure given by the knitting needles; this idea is intensified by the tangled yarn.
It portrays at once a sense of impending chaos and of liberation from constraints, an imminent and possibly irreversible change of state, frozen in time by the material qualities of clear cast glass.

This was inspired by my year of random morphine induced thoughts following a diagnosis of Liver and Lung cancer
