Past Works

2014-1999

Gayle Matthias's background is in kiln formed glass processes. Working with narratives relating to body dysfunction and physical vulnerabilities. Glass is used as a contradictory material; fragile and dangerous, brittle yet strong, textured and smooth. Fragments of utilitarian ceramics are bone-like, creating cavities, orifices, container-like structures, analogous of the human body. 

'Sink and Plug', 'Sink II' and 'Anatomical Deconstruction VII' featured in the British Glass Biennale 2008, 2010 and 2015.  An exploration of the relationship between materials and the body, 'Resolution', was an installation at Gloucester Road Underground Station in London 2000, part of the Sub Urban Glass exhibition.
