Children at Play, 2005

Faceted glass in mezzanine windows

Children at Play, a series of faceted glass panels, is a study of silhouetted figures moving through space, in various poses and movements - pausing, spinning, crouching, sliding, and running. Artist Josie Gonzalez Albright chose a palette of jewel tones for the children to take advantage of the luminous quality of the glass. Speaking of the work she says, "The scale of the children - to each other and the space that they're in - fills the frame with flowing colors that swirl around them. The effect is that they 'move through the colors' of their environment. Warm shadows are created from the placement of glass crystals that are fused over the glass, which gives...a bubbly, raised texture. Lots of clear glass allows for light from adjacent colored glass pieces to spill over and create new color combinations throughout the day."
