exhibits - Kerrick Johnson - Cutting Edge - November 19, 2010 - January 15, 2011

At first glance, it is easy to be attracted to Kerrick Johnson's large elegant, forms that capture the fluidity of molten, blown glass. The artist's vibrant hues, ultramarine, ruby red, bright leaf green, are intensified by the optics of thick, crystal clear glass that surrounds each colorful core. Many of the works are composed of multiple shapes that respond to one another's movement in space.

But, it is the artist's cold working and cutting of the glass that adds exceptional contrast, as hard edges and facets define the original, soft shape. Johnson combines traditional cutting patterns like "battuto" with glass carving on a large scale. Wide channels and spiraling grooves alter and define the silhouette of the sculpture versus merely decorating its surface. Light is refracted by the multiple areas of carving and captured in the interior of each piece, causing the colors to shift and dance.

Finally, sinuous, stainless steel supports lift the sparkling pieces into the air, allowing them to float and be seen from every angle.
