'Glass Ceiling' Review

National Business Review features new exhibition

Feb 2019. National Business Review art critic John Daly-Peoples reviews the multimedia exhibition LIP(S) at Silo Park, including Glass Ceiling (NZ Aotearoa) by Gill Gatfield, "a dramatic and impressive work" made from sixteen tonnes of smashed glass:

“The mass of glass is both beautiful and hazardous, invitingly tactile but dangerous to the touch. The undulating surface of the glass forms a shimmering landscape with the curved folds reminiscent of indentations made by human bodies.”

John Daly-Peoples 'New exhibition looks at the body, feminism, climate change and recycling' NBR 7 Feb 2019

Glass Ceiling (NZ Aotearoa)

'Glass Ceiling' smashed at Silo Park NZ

Feb 2019.  Dr. Warren Feeney, Art Historian | Critic: "Gatfield’s Glass Ceiling (NZ Aotearoa) possesses all the qualities anticipated in her work: an engaging physical experience of materials and site; a visual paradox about light, transparency and darkness; a metaphor about the politics of equality in the 21st century; and a celebration of and open-ended questions about the ideas and values of humanity."  View Cat.

'Stone-thinking from Zealandia'

Oct. 2018.  An evocative essay by Italian scholar Andrea Lombardo, 'Stone-thinking from Zealandia: The art of Gill Gatfield' is listed on Academia.edu, a research platform used by academics worldwide. (Abridged version published on Artslife.com 18 Sept. 2018.)
