Entry Description“FracTur(ed)” is a statement on finding ourselves in our modern society. It is challenging to find our reflection in the mirror, pulled in many directions, focused on many angles, and feeling like we are on a tight wire. Finding peace and tranquility in our ever demanding world is a challenge.
Light is fascination, attraction, a beacon, it is life. Light travels for eons before our existence, we see it after the millennia have past and the fleeting moment is gone. Julie Conway is an artist and designer revealing her perspective of the phenomenon of light through glass.
