Carson Fox

Blue Sky Pursuit, 2009

Laminated and tempered glass

At the Seaford Station 14 laminated glass windows extend the sky, creating a bright blue fantasy filled with butterflies and birds, their flights traced with dots of clear glass that meander, overlap and reveal paths of movement, speaking to migration and the act of travel. The dots also transform the sunlight and enliven the landscape. Artist Carson Fox used bird and butterfly images inspired from Victorian era engravings, an aesthetic where natural life is a lush and swarming profusion.

They were created from a process that includes painting on the glass. The 14 windows, eight on the north side of the waiting room and six on the south, combine to create a special place for commuters as they mark the start of their day in a space made radiant by the artist's vision.
