Autoglass2022

Another light piece-- fractured auto window glass fragments in clear epoxy on glass sheet. Tigerwood frame. This glass is pre-stressed so that any crack causes the whole sheet to instantly fracture along innumerable lines in a totally uncontrolled process. I like the unpredictability of this material. Sunlight at an angle sparkles off these internal fracture lines. I think about the Leonard Cohen line that "There is a crack in everything; that's how the light gets in". The Unitarian sermon this morning was about embracing the brokenness, so now I know what this piece is about. Now in my wife's art space to help with processing our daughter's fundamentalist rejection of family and friends last year.
