Momentary Reflections explores the themes of perceptual experiences and personal histories in response to surrounding environments and spaces. Artists Kristel Britcher, Melinda Willis and Christopher Boha are currently focused on these personal responses and through the medium of glass, each artist seeks to represent their own personal experiences within space, exploring notions of place, history, memory and experience. Space is both physical and emotional, it can be familiar or unknown, internal or external, and each artist has a different perspective and response, drawing references from different ideas of space or time.
Momentary Reflections not only seeks to communicate the artists' different responses and perspectives but aims to access shared personal experiences with the viewer. With the incorporation of techniques such as kiln formed, hot sculpted and blown glass, metal work and installation, this exhibition is not only thought provoking but visually rich, steeped in the combined material and tactile knowledge of each artist.
