Looking Glass: Apertura Series is an exhibition of fifteen new cut and polished sculptural works by Vancouver glass artist Laura Murdoch. While these works stand together as a series, each vessel is “painted” with layers of intricate and exuberant patterns, which distinguishes it from the next.
In this exhibition, Murdoch explores the idea of containment. Using a complex and labor-intensive process, the artist has encased numerous layered patterns within the walls of each glass vessel. When light enters the container, the intricacies of its form become evident and demonstrate the mastery that the artist has over her craft.
