Infinite Obsessions, a solo exhibition of glass and metal sculptures by Michael Glancy, includes over 35 new works. One could perhaps see these sculptural vessels and base plates as vases and platters, but there is more to it than that. Glancy incorporates copper, bronze, silver and gold into blown and plate glass, while using a process of electroforming as well as hand carving details upon the surfaces. "The fun part for me," Glancy states, "is the meticulous work. With a pair of visors that cuts my reality, really tunnels my reality down into a different plane, [I can get] into a micro area. By occupying my hands, it frees my mind."
Artist: Michael Glancy
Infinite Obsessions will be shown at Barry Friedman in New York from May 5 through July 15, 2011.
