Surround & Overflow

Superundare from the Latin to surround and overflow are kiln-formed glass works that disrupt the notion of the picture frame as a contained, two-dimensional space. The frames in this series are literally opened up, their contents exceed them, or they seem to hold nothing at all. In reducing the pictorial space to the frame itself and rendering that frame in transparent glass, these works trouble what can be framed and if it is only that which is visible.
