Western Project, Glass Tongues
This is an installation of hand blown glass tongues and drawings. The work itself is concerned with surface, material, and lightness, demonstrating a love of craft and skill. Nancy Picot Riegelman's pieces push ideas of beauty in their quietly sensual ways, highlighting direct and indirect means of communication between the body and the object.
Tongues are an curious part of the human anatomy and are relatively absent from art history; therefore becoming an intriguing, subject of inspiration/influence.
