Through a Glass Darkly takes its cue from this particular moment in history. These ordinary objects act as a symbol of implied meaning, a metaphor to examine profound notions of restriction and a visual provocation to reflect on a world that has shrunk to a few small blocks. In the age of isolation trying to connect and communicate the emerging needs of the soul is more important than ever. As creators, artists can try to answer the emotional and aesthetic needs of the future with new forms of connection, authenticity and intimacy – the stuff art has always attempted to provide.
