ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Saara Gallin


I think of my work as sculpting with light. My ongoing fascination with the effect of light, as it relates to the transparency and texture of mouth blown glass, grows, rather then diminishes with time. Kiln forming and the use of wire and mesh offer a multitude of avenues for the exploration of three-dimensional forms.

Although my work is a solitary act of discovery, it is one in which I hope to later meet the viewer and take him along with me on that joyous journey.


Saara Gallin (right) demonstrates to fellow traveller, Teina Tallarigo, how the light is captured in her piece, at the Art Opening, Fiji Museum, Suva, Fiji Islands.
