The problem I chose to work with was to render the figure in copperfoiled and leaded stained glass wall mounted or window hung panels. The solution I desired was primarily not academic. The plan was to unite separate facets of my previous work.
Using photographs and drawings from life as preliminary studies and problem solving devices, I then re-worked them into additional objects, i.e. free standing glass sculpture and intaglio prints. Consequently there are examples of the same subject in different media. It is from comparisons of these that I draw the bulk of my information for personal judgement, criticism and aesthetic evaluation.
The result of this effort is a cohesive exhibition of a creative effort coupled with a written document describing the processes of the critical decisions, trials and judgements during its preparation.
