Jeff Zimmerman: Drawings in Glass
9 November 2009 - 30 January 2010
82 Franklin St NY 10013
R 20th Century is pleased to announce Drawings in Glass, an exhibition featuring exceptional new work by Jeff Zimmerman, November 19, 2009 – January 30, 2010.
Inspired by patterns in nature-such as branches, waves, fractals and flower petals — Zimmerman has re-imagined the gallery space as a three-dimensional sketchbook showcasing his exquisite glass objects, illuminated hanging sculptures and mirrorized wall relief installations.
In creating this collection Zimmerman employed a calculated naiveté and lexicon of elemental forms that belie his incomparable craftsmanship and stature as one of the preeminent glassblowers working today. Seemingly simple, the pieces each push the boundaries of both the material and the traditions of glassblowing, creating a landscape of breathtaking, wholly unique forms.
