Over the past 100 years, the boundaries of traditional art have continued to expand, forcing us to acknowledge its openness, inclusiveness and dynamism. The growth of the arts has been very much a process of epistemological realization.
Glass art has its own unique characteristics, and has followed its own path of development. Under the influence of modern at, the boundaries of glass art have expanded to incorporate, sociology, psychology and even political science. In this sense, glass art is no longer merely “viewed,” but is also read, understood and reflected upon.
The exhibition Boundaries brings together the artistic works of several glass artists, each of whom have in their own way transcended what once were the boundaries of glass art, extending the art form from mere visual images to an infinite realm of possibilities.
