"Light Translations" Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, Denmark, 2016
My time spent in Denmark has been formative to my development as an artist and as a maker.
It was the first time I picked up a camera and the first time I began to truly study the landscape. The subtle colours of the Danish landscape were so different from the coastal environment that I grew up with in Perth, Western Australia. It was this change from one extreme to another that altered my perceptions and I became aware of the sublime qualities of light within the landscape.
By combining blown glass forms with personal photographs taken both in Denmark and in Australia I explore how light can be translated to a universal language of the sublime.
