On the surface of her immaculate blown glass vessels, Erin Conron etches a matrix of precise lines. A philosophically-oriented artist, Erin is interested in the intangible forces that underpin our everyday lives; the invisible blueprint that structures the cycles, rhythms and patterns of life. By transposing directional lines upon her spherical forms, Erin aspires to give these invisible forces a visible expression. After painting each of her glass vessels with enamel, she uses a variety of hand held tools to scratch directly into the surface. Given the way that Erin places her lines so close together, she creates a spectacular moiré effect, that is, she creates the illusion of movement on the surface of her work. This uncanny visual effect, created from static lines, gives a palpable sense of the cosmic energy and invisible forces that Erin urges us to see.
