Matthew Curtis – Luminous Margin

In developing this body of work, Curtis’ keen eye for symmetry and mathematical precision have become peripheral, yielding a more meditative approach to the alignment of form. Working with a subtle and shifting palette of hues, referencing the traditional glassblowing technique of submerso. The composition of these fields of colour, veneers encasing the encompassed blown void, accentuates their boundaries and margins. Reflecting upon how objects and ideas need at times to yield and accommodate each other to fit together harmoniously.
