The first in an occasional series of exhibitions curated around the theme of materials in art, this visually arresting exhibition explores new possibilities offered by glass as a medium through the eyes and hands of two of Europe’s leading artists.

‘A Touch of Glass’ brings together a body of new work by gallery artists Michal Macku and Angela Glajcar linked by their stylization of contrasts and the absence of colour. The sensory impact of light reflections on their creations creates an almost poetic spatial experience comprising both delicacy as well as strong definition.

The sensory impact of light reflections on their creations creates an almost poetic spatial experience comprising both delicacy as well as strong definition.

Transparency and space experienced through a material that is fragile and light characterize Angela’s oeuvre. Well known for her paper sculptures, the artist has recently discovered ‘glass fabric,’ which she now uses extensively especially in installations. Her most recent work, WithinThe Light, is currently set up in Southwark Cathedral, London. Says the artist, “Each single panel of glass fabric is irreversibly transformed by the act of cutting or pulling out and, as a result, is no longer whole, no ‘blank paper’. By lining up individual elements, new impressions arise as does, simultaneously, a look back. Neither a tunnel nor a vista is formed, nor a view into the future created, but a face that is filled. All my works are a memory of an inward view and a return to the past. It is never a full restitution; thereby remaining an impression which arises only by experiencing the flow of time.”

Michal Macků continues to draw his inspiration from the human form, with its contrasts of perfection and fragility, its complexity and transitionary nature. The subject and object of his work, he celebrates the human body in graphic tones with a complex interplay of light and dark, positive and negative, in his unique three-dimensional photographic sculptures.
