Dual Nature: Contemporary Glass and Jewelry

Sarmiento, Jeffrey (2011) Dual Nature: Contemporary Glass and Jewelry. 13 May 2011-15 January 2012, George Tsutakawa Art Gallery at the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience.

Item Type: Show/Exhibition


Dual Nature was a group exhibition featuring the work of eight glass and jewelry artists of Asian and Asian-American descent who have ties to the Pacific Northwest. This exhibition includes intricate metalwork inspired by botany, organic forms in paper and resin, architectural glass vessels, colorful micro-mosaic brooches, and reflections on cultural roots and identity.

My contribution to this exhibition consisted of four printed, waterjet cut and fused glass artworks that are based on an encounter with Soviet-era architecture in the Baltic States. Screenprinted patterns form a visual turbulence on or behind architecture-inspired geometric shapes, echoing a history of oppression and the ongoing tensions in the present day.
