Four Exhibitions Display Artistic Versatility Of Glass

The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery is celebrating the second element of its name with a quartet of exhibitions devoted to glass.

The featured exhibitions introduce new work by Chris Dorosz, Jacqueline Berting and Miyuki Shinkai.

Also on view is a Coles Notes type survey of 3,500 years of functional glassware and decorative techniques.

The exhibitions continue through June 3.

PAINTED ROOM

Dorosz's Painted Room is a three-dimensional installation that combines elements of painting and sculpture.

Nylon fishing lines are suspended from a grid panel which, in turn, is suspended from the ceiling. Attached to the lines are hardened multi-coloured gobs of oil paint resembling asymmetrical glass beads.

The gobs are placed so that they create the shape-- or illusion of shape -- of furniture in a room. There is a couch; end tables, one with a lamp; coffee table; a couple of chairs.

Simultaneously substantial and insubstantial, the magical installation raises questions about the material world in the age of virtual reality by embodying a series of paradoxes: Now you see it; now you don't. What you see isn't always what you get. What you get, isn't always what you see.

The installation is highly interactive. As viewers walk around it, objects seem to emerge and recede. There's even the hint of a human presence, a ghostly apparition, at once there and not there.
