Transparencies of the soul

21 April 2023 - 28 May 2023

Lucia Vallejo is Basque and has a background in art history, which is not something that should be overlooked. She came to sculpture by way of painting, not in the sense that she had been a painter, but in the sense that she had studied painting’s mechanisms and its structure.

Vallejo dismantles painting, using the canvas not as a support but as a living material. Lucia Vallejo’s interest in the world of glass dates from 2019 and she approached the medium as a sculptor who carries painting in her mind’s eye at all times. Rather than simply abandoning canvas, she did something without precedent in the thousand-year history of Murano glass: she burned it during the glass-making process itself. Vallejo has now produced her latest work in the Czech Republic working with Bohemian glass.
