Kiln Formed Glass
36 x 72 x 12 inches
As Artists, we are also scientists, explorers, and investigators; each of these titles leave us to examine our spaces, objects, and “moments”. Lindsy Marshall is interested in cycles of life- transition to destruction. With this idea in mind, she creates sculptures that force the viewer to engage with the piece itself. Taking a closer look and starting a conversation about materials and process. Thinking about how far you can push the material, these sculptures are created to force the viewer to ask questions; to step outside their normal world and enter a completely different world. “Creating glass sculptures that don’t look like glass”.
These sculptures relate to Lindsy’s personal connection to nature. Represented throughout by the changing of states of glass. Just like humans, glass, goes through cycles: breathing, growing, presentation, death, and embalming. Her work connects to nature in its changing states and various forms, as glass becomes the voice-alive, organic, and fluid. Entropy is at the core of her sculptures- symbiotic relationships between maker and material, artist and medium, author and artwork, birth and decay.
