October 31, 2014 The work X will be marking a spot at NZ Sculpture OnShore, a major survey of contemporary New Zealand sculpture, from Thursday 6 November until Sunday 16 November.
August 2014. Gill Gatfield's glass sculpture Ally Sloper is selected for Chicago Sculpture International 2014, a juried exhibition held in association with the International Sculpture Centre, curated by Professor Mark Swain at Lewis University Art Gallery.
Pairing the glamour of glass and the allure of transparency with brilliant reflections and stark geometry, Ally Sloper arcs between wall and floor. Neither wall sculpture nor freestanding object, the abstract figure operates as a hybrid form. It mindfully creates a protective shield, claiming space in the room. Like a futuristic shelter it manifests as an ethereal arch, a crystal-clear rainbow, an inviting passage - defining an ‘alley’ with its polished edge.
"Ally Sloper is a very powerful, yet elegant demonstration of how an artist can draw a viewer in, hold their attention, and cause them to reflect and respond to not only the sculpture itself, but the surrounding space it occupies." – Prof. Mark Swain, Curator
