A grain of gold – studio glass by Holly Grace

Exhibition and Shows

28 Feb 2019 to 17 Mar 2019

Holly Grace’s new exhibition explores the history and motivations behind early European settlement in the Australian Highlands. She examines their search for material wealth within a landscape of immaterial beauty, juxtaposing the two through imagery painted, etched and projected onto glass objects. These forms are based on items found in huts throughout the region, fusing place to object creating a transportable memory. Holly uses her immense set of technical skills to take her audience on a journey through the history of this area reflecting on its original occupants, colonialist transformation and modern state. Holly’s work is in a number of prestigious collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Australian National Glass Collection, Parliament House and Art Gallery of Western Australia.
