Verity Wyn Evans

I have just visited fascinating glass and light exhibition at the White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey. Her pieces are full of reflections and transparency, incorporating visitors to participate in the overall scene. The work has poetic, reflective qualities and astonished with precision of execution and bizarre aesthetics of broken shards. The artefacts are suspended in the air, somehow interacting with each other while populating empty spaces. The inclusion of Chinese writing in one of the rooms contextualises her ideas while making references to both the Great Wall and a metaphorical open doorway in it.

The viewing is quite an emotional experience.
