Nina Johnson opens their second solo exhibition of the work of seminal artist Judy Chicago: “Judy Chicago in Glass“.
The works in this exhibition focus on her cast glass and kiln painted images of hands in emotive gestures ranging from the raised fist of protest or triumph to the vulnerability of an outstretched palm. Alongside these are a selection of portrait busts, each conveying the mental state of the sitter: sometimes somber, sometimes exposed. The forms echo the characteristics of the glass used to create them, which can be both incredibly strong or fragile.
This exhibition includes works from Chicago’s glass series, alongside drawings, and the debut of “Mortality in Glass“, Chicago’s largest glass work to date.
