September 29 - November 1, 2014

Ross Richmond_ _Muse_

When it comes to sculpting the human figure in blown glass, there are few artists in the world that can stand toe-to-toe with Ross Richmond. After earning a B.F.A. in glass sculpture at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Richmond refined his skills blowing glass on William Morris's team for ten years. In Muse, Richmond focuses on the female figure for the first time, drawing inspiration from a wide spectrum of artists ranging from Classical painters to contemporary graffiti artists. The results are brilliantly patterned surfaces (created by layering colored hot glass) influenced by the work of Gustav Klimt with a focal point on the hands, rendered expressionistically using a variety of techniques capturing emotion and subtle gestures in a new way.
