Art Description |Three Metaphors, 2014

 

Three turnable forms of blown opaque black glass on a wooden base.
The object tells it’s own story, in a dialogue with the observer.

 

Technique: Murano glass, free blown. Several layers of black glass enclose the inner layer, which is of coloured glass rods. There is no objective indication on the surface of what is going on inside the object.
The surface of THREE METAPHORS was first roughed over, then hand-polished, a process which gives the sculpture a velvet-soft haptic quality.


Installation requirements: avoid exposure to the bright, hot sunshine.

What I express through my sculptures is intimately bound up with the medium I am using, the characteristics of glass: how it came into being, its properties and the way it is worked.


In other words, what I am setting out to do could not be done in anything but glass.
For some time now I have been moving to a situation where the obvious properties of glass lose importance and the more cryptic ones gain in significance.

Art Description |The BEACHCOMBINGS SERIES, #3

 

Like an archaeological artefact, the sculpture is mounted on an iron support. The familiar form of the head seems somehow out of place, pointing to the existence of a world beyond the visible: the world of the surreal. Like the others, BEACHCOMBINGS SERIES, #3 explores the internal and the external, the relationship between God and Man, and the meeting point of different realities. These are themes as old as humankind itself. We find them in the masks and sculptures of 'primitive' peoples.
And they in turn may have inspired artists like Jean Arp, Picasso, Max Ernst and Henry Moore to produce their surrealistic sculptures, or painters like Edvard Munch or Henri Matisse to produce 'The Scream' or 'Madame Matisse' respectively.

Art Description |The BEACHCOMBINGS SERIES, #2

 

Material: Murano glass, free blown and hot shaped. With two openings.
Glass enables me to combine the subtlety of painting with three-dimensional form.
Process: multiple layers. Internal: opaque glass rods and crystal layers. External: coral red opaque. The structured surface prevents reflections, resulting in a powerful sculptural presence.

Art Description |The BEACHCOMBINGS SERIES, #4


Material is not all it appears to be.
Colour is something that can express either belonging or a longing to get away.
Orifices are openings, convey transition.
These are indeterminate objects — caught in the moment like flotsam and jetsam picked up on distant shores. Stripped of their context, things lose clarity, become ambivalent. Released from representational duties, they are pure perception, have an existence which is beyond ‘objective’.
Meaning is elusive, can be anything or nothing.


The BEACHCOMBINGS SERIES pieces pose a constant challenge to the observer to revise and refresh his/her impressions, dreams, fantasies or associations.

 

Medium: glass
Process: Venetian glass, free blown and hot shaped. Multiple layers to generate sculptural strength. Internal: opaque glass rods and crystal layers. External: opaque Yves-Klein-blue and crystal layer. Five window openings draw the observer’s gaze inside.


After cooling, the piece is sculpted, surface structured and finally polished by hand. This gives it a velvet-soft feel.
Weight: 5.2 kg

About | Eva Moosbrugger

Eva Moosbrugger’s sculptures are made of Venetian Glass, which since the Middle Ages has been prized as the finest and most valuable glass in the world. Her work is outstanding for its contemporary spirit and timeless beauty. With heavy, hand-blown glass objects in subtle colors, the sculptress makes light dance. Ingenious surface textures invite the viewer to touch and stroke, and give the sculptures their characteristic haptic appeal. She works in cycles, following an idea, or a conception, or an allegorical reference, and uses different approaches to create a range of related objects. One of her recurrent themes is Nature, though the way she depicts it is through abstraction, or the radical reduction of the idea.
