Paloma Varga Weisz: Glass

Paloma Varga Weisz ,Sadie Coles HQ

Paloma Varga Weisz unveils a new body of work in cast glass that extends her long-running Wilde Leute series, shown in dialogue with a number of recent watercolour drawings on paper – at the Bury Street gallery in St James’s.

Varga Weisz’s new sculptures represent the first time she has worked with glass, signalling a significant new stage in her sustained exploration of sculpture as a medium and traditional modes of craftsmanship. Developed over the past year, the body of work emerged from Varga Weisz’s experience of glass during a visit to Murano, following which she began a collaboration with glassmakers in South Tirol to explore the unique potential to express the transitory elements of light and colour inherent to the medium. Reconceived in glass, the sculptural figures draw new parallels with the transparent quality of her watercolour drawings, in which light and colour become transformational elements that animate her characters with formal and metamorphic fluidity.
