Inside Out, 2011
Glass, copper and bronze
Marianne Weil's latest sculpture in glass and bronze is a result of a research grant the artist received in 2010-11. Her new work explores the margins of material and space with compelling and persuasive use of transparency with the solidity of metal. The consequence of blown glass into cast bronze creates a primal tension, one which transcends great density to one of lightness. Support for this project was provided by a PSC-CUNY Award, jointly funded by The Professional Staff Congress and The City University of New York.
In 2011, Marianne was the US representative to the International Sculpture Symposium at the Kirsten Kjærs Museum in Frøstrup, Denmark where she cast bronze components for her recent work. Her copper and bronze constructions are encased in blown glass and also function as reciprocal chambers for the blown works. Surfaces are etched with a combination of sand, copper and powder pigments.
