Delusione - Flake Gold (medium) – 2018
- Image Size: 8in x 11in x 6in
A glass sculpture by artist Elliot Walker, as part of our IN:SIGHT 2018 collection.
Fascinated by the ability of glass to trick and subvert the viewer’s visual experience, psychology graduate Elliot brings the medium to life.
Working alone and with artist Bethany Wood, his work incorporates traditional still life painting. He uses a technique called massello, whereby the pieces are modelled from cooling liquid. This is not without its challenges as temperatures can reach up to 1000 degrees.
Elliot says: “Glass is a concept as well as a material – it has a life of its own!”
