about the exhibition
Jeremy Lepisto’s painted, cold-worked and fused glass sculptures provide an abstract look at the commonplace elements of everyday life. Finding inspiration in the silhouettes and lines of urban architecture, such as the facades of buildings, water towers and the tangle of city power lines, Jeremy’s work encourages us to look again at the surroundings we usually take for granted. Following his move to Australia in 2009, notions of transience and recollection have featured in his work with the representation of shipping crates, pallets and barrels – the paraphernalia of relocation. Jeremy completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Metals, Glass) at the New York College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1997. He has worked extensively as a technical assistant and instructor in workshops and universities across America, the UK and Australia, and is currently President of the Glass Art Society of America. Jeremy’s work is in collections including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Museum of Glass (Washington), Knoxville Museum (Tennessee) and Ebeltoft Museum (Denmark).
