Thursday 5 July - Saturday 25 August 2018

Leading glass artist Elizabeth Kelly will present a new body of work developed over the course of a decade; the result of extensive research into organic structures of viruses, cellular life forms, marine invertebrates and pollen grains.

Macrocosmia features a series of large‐scale, free‐standing sculptural works realised through a process of cross‐disciplinary collaboration between the artist, a theoretical astrophysicist and an engineer.

Elizabeth Kelly commenced her career in glass with a two‐year full time factory traineeship in glass blowing in 1985 at the JamFactory in Adelaide. Post training, she undertook studies at the Adelaide Centre for the ARTS, transferring to the Australian National University School of Art to complete a degree in Visual Art. In 1997 Kelly commenced a three‐year contract as Head of Glass Workshop at the JamFactory. In 2003 she established Studio Tangerine in Canberra, a purpose built self‐funded glass design and sculpture studio where she continues to work.
