Description/

There is an ethereal quality that is central to Ilkka Suppanen’s irradiant glass sculptures, where reflective surfaces are embedded deeply in solid glass. The voluptuous forms of the weightless and transparent, blown glass provide a protective shell for the shiny mirror, which captures and reflects the surrounding light as it constantly changes throughout the day, thereby modifying its own visual appearance, all the while expanding the perspectives of our own surrounding reality. It is this quality of the mirror that intrigues Ilkka Suppanen in his use of the material; the idea of how the image we perceive in the mirror contributes to molding our identity. The mirror metaphor is also relevant to the fragmented discourse and media of the Post-Truth age, which provides an endless array of different perspectives and data on our inchoate reality.

Materials: Handblown Murano Glass, Silver Nitrate.
