Glass as a canvas, as a carrier through history
10/04/2011 – 25/09/2011

This exhibition is an investigation into the use of glass as a canvas. It is a series of confrontations of the glass canvas in its physical appearance (smooth - rough | light - dark | transparent screen - reflection | miniature - monumental), but also in the psychological experience (accessible - unreachable | reveal - blur | protect - invite). Going from the canvas as a mediator between inside and outside, to the glass surface as an image former or transformer, as a classical canvas or carrier of a concept that appears as a rigid skin or as a flexible weaving.
The Glass Canvas presents itself as a breakable membrane that gives access to the unreachable reality, which it reflects or deforms, fragments or defragments.
The Glass Canvas is a virgin surface that is covered with paints and emulsions or damaged by chemical or mechanical attacks, but in its clear state can be used as a high gloss protector.
This exhibition is a meeting between old and new in a glass context of religion, architecture, art and entertainment.
