Artist: Danny Perkins

  • Love, admiration and respect for the visual arts have formed my life as long as I can remember. They motivated me to devote my life to art, its limitless challenges, variety of expressions, its magical qualities and its ability to elicit deep emotional and intellectual responses.

    I have been influenced by the Abstract Expressionists rather than by the representational art. In my work I combine the physicality of a material, glass, with the emotional capacity of color. The way in which my work is accomplished, first the communal group effort to blow and form my large fluid glass sculptures with a talented and experienced team, and subsequently alone and solitary in my studio, can be taken as a metaphor for my relationship with people, nature and contemporary life and the world.
