Neil Roberts Chances with Glass

17 August to 15 October 2017

Curated by: Barbara Campbell and Jane Cush

NEIL ROBERTS (1954 – 2002) trained as a glassblower in the early 1980s but quickly evolved his practice to sculpture, often combining glass with other materials. He was fascinated with the vulnerable quality of glass and frequently invited fracture and repair into his processes of making. This exhibition focuses on Roberts’ interest in arenas of masculinity such as the boxing ring, gymnasium, farmyard and urban gangland. The tension between violence and tenderness he observed in such arenas found expression through his chancy collaborations with the glass medium.
