EXHIBITION: “Perception,” Jan 4 – Feb 15, 2020. ARTS ON DOUGLAS GALLERY, 123 Douglas Street, New Smyrna Beach, FL. 32168. Artsondouglas.net
Bats are a matter of perception.
This work captures bats in bronze and glass, two extraordinary elements that when fused, create a tension between light and a weighted dark. Bats, most often perceived as creatures of the night, come to life with refractive light and color in these pieces. Glass is a thoughtful material – technically challenging and delicate – which draws attention to not just the beauty of bats but also their endangered status.
