Distorted Trajectories

6 February - 21 March 2020

Marcel Hoogstad Hay | Madeline Prowd

Using traditional Venetian cane and murrine techniques, Madeline Prowd and Marcel Hoogstad Hay have created a compelling series of new works that explore similar themes from alternate perspectives. Both artists have utilised the unique qualities of blown glass to address the idea of distortion – of space, time, light and pattern. Prowd’s textural vessels exploit the materiality of transparent glass to warp and distort linear patterns, while Hoogstad Hay’s wall pieces reference astrophysical phenomena and illustrate the quantum nature of the universe.

Marcel Hoogstad Hay is an Australian emerging artist and designer working primarily with blown glass. He received his Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2012 from the Glass Workshop at the ANU School of Art in Canberra and in 2014 completed the two-year Associate Training Program at Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design in Adelaide.

Madeline Prowd is an early career glass artist, currently working out of Adelaide, Australia. Studying under Richard Whiteley, Nadege Desgenetez and Brian Corr, she received a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the Australian National University in 2009. Madeline then relocated to Adelaide to undertake the two-year Associate Training Program in the Glass Studio at JamFactory.

Exhibition opening: Thursday 6 February 2020, 6pm.

Floor talk: Saturday 8 February 2020, 12.30 - 1pm.
