This poured glass sculpture is an ambiguous object that subtly reference moments of reality that morph to reject definition. The materiality is intended to draw attention to the superficiality of the surface. The object's immediate aesthetics become a commentary on the simultaneous desires for publicity and privacy involved in acts of expression. 2019 Dimensions: 10 x 7 x 5" Materials: Poured glass
Donny Nie (Chicago)
Donny Nie is a current MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a 2019 BFA graduate from OCAD University. Her paintings and prints underline the exhaustion and exuberance, of overwhelming possibilities in mundanity. The artworks reference sensations and processes of consuming food, to embody a continuous, and subtle shaping of an individual through accumulative and innocent routine. Nie paints to preserve memories of the ubiquitous and the personal, while celebrating a privacy embedded within the public images.
