The exhibition will launch, part of Late Night Art Belfast, Thursday 3 August, 5.30pm
Arts + Disability Forum is proud to present Reflections of Nebulae – 2, the second exhibition of sculptural forms in glass by kiln-formed glass artist Keith Sheppard. Keith’s exhibition forms part of Craft NI’s August Craft Month 2017.
Exploring the relationship between glass and light, and reflecting his observations and interpretation of Nebulae stars within the galaxies of the Universe, Keith’s glass art predominantly involves the infusion of metals into the glass. This process gives each sculptural form a further dimension of uniqueness and identity, enhancing the vibrant colourations.
These processes are transferred into Keith’s interpretation of the stars; depicting their existence, shaping their markings, clouds, and gases from their birth in Nebulae, to hot blue stars, red super giants and their eventual end in a Supernova explosion.
