Sally Fawkes' intriguing glass articulates the visible and invisible possibilties of place. Bold rhythmical forms entice with the reassurance of their geometric origins and are animated by carefully considered combinations of markmaking, mirrored planes and surfaces of rich associative colours. Their luminous volumes of transparent cast glass are alive with layers of shifting imagery that blur the boundaries between the ethereal and the physical. Each piece captures the imagination in a journey of intense visual exploration.
