Glass As Metaphor

Hi, my name is Joanna Manousis. I am a British glass artist / designer currently living in the United States. I am a studio resident at the Museum of Art and Design every Thursday from 10am – 5pm. Please come by to see my work in progress and learn how glass can be used as an artistic medium.

I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to my group exhibition at 111 Front St Gallery, Suite 216, Dumbo, Brooklyn from February 2nd to March 17th 2012. There will be an opening reception on February 2nd from 6pm-pm as well as a second opening on March 1st. My installation of glass mylar ballons titled, ‘Reaching An Ulterior Realm’ will be on display along with the work of Michael Hernandez, Beccy Feather and Tracy Kirchmann. I will also be giving a slideshow lecture about my working practice  on Saturday February 11th  at 1pm.

‘Reaching An Ulterior Realm’

2010 – 11

Glass is used in Manousis’ sculpture as a vehicle to engage reflection both physically and metaphorically in the viewer. She uses the intrinsic material properties of glass as a medium to “create installations that speak of taste, personal memory and the passage of time.”

Reaching an Ulterior Realm consists of three mylar balloons suspended on a wall, which look to be easy targets for the bronze arrows propelled towards them. They are playful while also being a metaphor for the fragility of life.

    This is great Joanna, I’ll *try* to make it out there tonight, but I love that there’s another opportunity on 3/1. Congrats again, and WELCOME! 😀
