dc.description.abstract 'Blind Glass' was a collection of works that drew their form and imagery from familiar every-day situations. The works employed a broad array of materials and pre-constructed objects, including: shelving, tables, household objects, sheets of particle board, plastic laminate, fibreglass, mirror and paint. There was a consistent reference throughout the exhibition to the body. The works have the potential to be read as bodily supports (furniture) and body substitutes (physical and psychic). They opened outwardly onto a socially indexed environment and inwardly through personal reflection. Like partial stage sets, the works are presented as traces of scenarios suggesting narrative. However, despite the apparent potential of subjective relations and what might be described a sculptural variant of narrative production, one would be hard put to summarize quite what story has been told. The sculptures occupy what might be described as a zone existing somewhere between the recognisable and familiar matters of their everyday qualities, and an almost dreamlike state of autonomous ideals and semantic absence. A key objective was to have the sculptures open onto a sense of an alterity in opposition to, yet emerging out of, the commonality of their more obvious indices. en
