A collateral event in association with the project Within Light//Inside Glass. An intersection between art and science transporting the viewer into a fantastical world, and luminescent pate de verre objects creating glowing cityscapes reveal the delicacy of the metropolis.

With out doubt it is the Venetians that pioneered the genre of landscape painting and the exploration of light as a powerful atmospheric element. Light inspires artists to create landscapes that prevail over the human figure, where the earth and disorder dictate the skyline, and the natural environment dominates over rationality and prospective. Through light, symbolic themes, mystic narratives and historical clues are both revealed and concealed within the canvas as they shift between clarity and obscurity.

 

Through light nature is discovered.  Veronica Green, a young artist originally from New Zealand now located in Venice uses this concept of light to create works with similar pictorial ideals of great masters such as Giorgione, Bellini, Tintoretto, Tiepolo, and Veronese. Veronica uses intense vibrant colours with touches of fluorescent  paint to convey a vision that is rich in cultural references from her own origins. Her works communicates on various levels of interpretation and formal realisation; in daylight nature emerges in a poignant yet deceptive landscape, but in darkness a different scene of dreamy allure develops.
