Rachel Gretton – Cracks of Love
Specialising in kiln formed glass, Rachel Gretton’s new body of work reflects on relationships, communication and the use of language both spoken and unspoken. It is language, discourse and the process of negotiating meaning and truth, which informs Rachel’s work.
The act of penetrating glass forms with fragments of text is literally and metaphorically an act of vitrification, transforming the everyday speech that passes between us. Rachel has an interest in exploring the use of projection, reflection, light and shadow to echo intense experiences reflecting on personal relationships: the untouchable emotions, celebrating the comfortable silence and expressing the mental chaos.
