GLASSY

"Mayer has created a new body of work made from kiln-worked fused glass, a material that has come to encapsulate our physical and digital worlds. Much of our reality is not experienced directly, but is mediated through glass, via corrective eyewear, windows, windshields, camera lenses, televisions, phones, and computer screens. Yet there is an inherent fragility and vulnerability to glass, a surface Mayer likens to the superficiality and accessibility of the self to others. As the artist has stated, contemporary social relations are experienced "not in polished squares, but in messy, overlapping, contradictory compositions and various opacities that allow for inconsistent visual access to the world around and within us.”
