Wheat Installations are ready for SOFA! The months of ongoing pulling cane and flame working for SOFA Chicago are almost finished. PISMO Gallery will be representing JP’s work this fall at the prestigious art exposition from November 1st-4th. Over four days, 100 galleries will present artists from around the world.
The presentation of JP’s Wheat Installations is 16 years in the making. He originally came up with the concept of glass wheat for his senior project at Alfred University in the mid 90s. Since then his knowledge of glass has grown to allow him to create a serene interpretation of a cross section of a wheat field. The varying dimensions of his installations give the imagination room to dream of glistening acres of wheat.
SOFA Expo Chicago will be held on November 1st-4th, 2012 in Chicago at the historic Navy Pier. Tickets and special viewings are still available to purchase at www.sofaexpo.com.
