Artist Talk - Peter Nilsson and Kirstie Rea
- Duration: 60 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Kingston, ACT
- Product code: P9CS8Z
Peter Nilsson has had a studio glass career for over thirty years in Sweden and Australia.
Inspired by Scandinavian folklore and a fascination of nature, Nilsson’s work
examines the fluid boundaries between humans and nature and the fragile
relationship they share. Nilsson's techniques involve expert recycling
of discarded glass, laminated and kiln formed glass and enclosed engravings.
At the core of Kirstie Rea’s practice lies the desire to seek an understanding of
connections to place. Walking in places beyond urban environments, seeking
solitude and distance, Rea uses photography and writing to inform her making.
In this first CGW artist talk since the resumption of studio activities after
Covid, Peter and Kirstie will share about new work made during residencies to the Glassworks in 2020.
