~AMY GARTERLL/DRIFTWOOD/BEVELED GLASS DISK
. . . this unusual piece by AMY GARTRELL caught our eye back in the summer, when it was exhibited in the back room, while the ARND SEIBERT/SEAN RASPET show – ‘The Way Things Are’ was featured in the main gallery, June 2 – July 7, 2007.
Titled, ‘Untitled’, dated 2007, the materials used were specified as: ghostwood, wood stain, beveled glass. dimensions: 60 x 28 x 24 ins. DANIEL REICH told us at this time – when we remarked how beautiful and mysterious the piece was – that glass making was one of Amy’s loves and it was a hobby for her – in the sense that she actually produces the glass pieces herself – she does not outsource the work.
the patterned leaf & barbed wire ‘wallpaper’ in the background is ‘Wallpaper’, 2006 by ARND SEIBERT.
