Look out to what’s above. Where there is distance before a horizon, we see time in the space between. The unabsorbed light, that suspended air, it taints everything far off a taciturn blue. A veil that shifts and shapes the far off landscapes, diffusing the mountains into the sky. The sky, not a ceiling, but a limitless expanse. No border, no confines; a space without objects, form or interruption. This space lets thoughts escape, allowing the inner mind to leak out into the void. Here the distinction between self and space blur… I investigate the relationship between vast, open spaces and the mind.
Lucy Palmer graduated with Honours in Visual Arts, specialising in Glass, from the University of South Australia in 2014. Currently working from her studio at the Canberra Glassworks, Lucy strives to utilise the unique qualities of kiln formed glass to create an illusory sense of distance and depth; depicting vast landscapes, expansive skies and the quiet horizon where the two dissolve. Her inspiration derives from an interest in the incredible potential of distance and space to draw the viewer away from their immediate physical environment and allow the mind to escape.
