Accomplished glass artist Louis Thompson explores illusion and the perceptions of glass. He is fascinated by the haptic experience in art and sculpture. With simplicity and purity of materials, he plays with the viewers’ comprehension of what is put before them.
In his own words:
‘My work is concerned with ideas of repetition, sequence and multiples. This stems from a fascination with the idea of collections: multiples that record and archive history from medical apparatus to the scientific aesthetic of research and inquiry. My glass works examine material volume, weight, and ambiguity, are they solid or liquid, full or empty? My pieces pose questions about the material and the idea of function, playing with the viewers’ perception to examine what is real and not real.’
