Gauge - A matter of moisture
An installation by B. Jane Cowie
STURT GALLERY - 9 April - 4 June 2017
EXHIBITION OPENING: Sunday 9 April, 11am by Peter Minson, Glass Artist
Using, thread, woven mesh, heat, plastic borosilicate glass, time, water and space B. Jane Cowie creates an immersive installation at Sturt Gallery investigating the collection and creation of water and rainfall within different lived environments.
“With a measured intention to gauge my own intent, this exhibition is an installation within a space for a predetermined period of time, addressing matters of process and an emerging meaning in relation to space”.
Creating an environment within a gallery space, as a pleasant, comforting, soft place, almost ethereal in nature, allows viewers to interact with and be amongst ideas, measured and articulated.
B. Jane Cowie has been working with glass for over 20 years. Cowie has played an important role in the development of contemporary craft in Australia through numerous roles on boards of key organisations. Cowie moved to Singapore in 2003 and now runs a company called Art Glass Solutions that develops large scale art installations for the public and private sectors and public art commissions.
