Holly Johnson Gallery presents Margo Sawyer: "Reflect" opening reception
Holly Johnson Gallery will present the opening of “Reflect,” by Austin-based sculptor Margo Sawyer. Throughout her career, Sawyer has created installations which translate sacred spaces into a contemporary vocabulary.
The central actor of Sawyer's art is color. “Reflect” 2017, is a large-scale floor installation that converses with the architecture in an ever-changing way, with the play of light and reflection moving throughout the space and uniting an array of complex and unexpected unions of color. “Reflect” holds fragments of a career long fascination with glass, its optical color play, how transparency, reflectivity, luminosity, physicality, materiality, perceptual, material and shape affect the psychological effects of color, as a window into our emotions. Elements of the work were produced by the artist in residence at Pilchuck Glass School and more recently at Franz Mayer of Munich, Germany in 2106.
Following the opening reception the exhibit will be on view through February 3.
