Circles and SquaresChris Bird Jones
17 September - 03 November 2013
In Chris’ cupboards you will find, amongst other things, lots of glass. Glass has been her primary material of choice for many years. Taking some of these pieces out of her cupboard and placing them in the space at Mission Gallery will give the opportunity to re-view this work, tracing the route it has taken leading to this point now.
Chris sees this as an opportunity to reflect on her work, explored over the years, working in glass and light. There are clues, shapes, images and forms, patterns emerge..... the comment book is a key part of this process. Chris is inviting gallery viewers' to respond to the work she shows and comment on it.
