Amy Cushing, Bargello, UK, 2020
Amy Cushing has gained international acclaim for her large-scale, installations of handmade colored glass. After studying an eclectic array of disciplines at the Chelsea School of Art and Design in London, Cushing focused her attention on public art, specializing in architectural ceramics and glass. Color sequence is fundamental to Cushing’s artistic process, as she is attuned to the strong emotions that colors evoke. Her suspended works weave color with mesmerizing effect, conveying a sense of energy, rhythm, and harmony. They hang with a sense of fragility, their slight movement adding an ethereal quality. Accents of precious metal gilding are used to catch and refract even more ambient light, adding a new dimension to the glass installations.
Bargello is a type of needlepoint embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical formation to create an endless array of woven patterns of striking colour combination.
As the artist is available on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
Medium: Woven glass wall sculpture – double layered Charcoal, turquoise, coral
