SALLY FAWKES

GLASS SCULPTOR 

‘The Latin word for mirror, ‘speculum’ gives us the verb to speculate. My sculptures invite you to immerse yourself in the complex realm of what you see, what you think you see and so what is potential.’

The nature of visual perception is rich and ambiguous and can

stimulate extraordinary sensory experiences. Sally Fawkes’s glass sculptures explore the intersections between the intangible and the physically apparent, expressing the possibilities of experience as the boundaries of the visible and invisible blur.

The late Dan Klein described Sally’s work as “self-explanatory narratives full of feeling and content, communicating without any need for words, delighting the eye and setting thought processes in motion.”

Her research encompasses sensory response and interactions with places and spaces; physical space, and, or concepts in space. She records historical and contemporary interests through drawing, painting, photography and recently video.

Transparent optical casts of glass become the core of her three-dimensional narratives which she works to highly polished surfaces, adding layers of engraving, textures and deep carving to provide a richness of language that holds the attention and begs further investigation.

Her trademark application of mirrored surfaces add a further layer of complexity and animation that delight in confusing and beguiling the eye whilst also giving her the opportunity to paint on a reverse surface. The resulting surface colours and textures are rich and associative giving voice to further layers of information. Each piece has its own distinct expressive narrative that captures the imagination in a journey of intense visual exploration.
