from the Trance Lucid series: ‘During the last few years, I have been working with translucent materials to create pieces that react to light. Separately, I have been wanting to explore how an object’s individual qualities change when it becomes part of a group, transforming it into something very different. For this exhibition, I will combine these two interests. I will create an organic installation that seeks to exploit the particular properties of frosted cups.  I have been drawn to their capacity to both absorb and redirect light.’ Text taken from Joan Belar’s site.
