For thirty years Elizabeth Kelly has put her energy into developing a multi-disciplinary practice, one that crosses over from studio glass to sculpture and the built environment. Glass is Kelly’s preferred medium. With glass she can bring into the sculptural equation colour that she creates especially for each work. The colours have a subtle effect on our reading of the objects. The quality of transparency adds a further dimension. Kelly’s polychroic colours respond to density and light, animating the viewer’s experience in a way that other materials could not. One is never left in any doubt that her exceptional technical expertise is always employed to realise an aesthetic goal.
