Gerry King is an Australian glass artist based in Adelaide. He has been involved in all aspects of contemporary Australian glass – as an academic in his role as Head of The School of Design at the University of South Australia as well as the curator of many touring exhibitions in Australia, Asia and the USA. He has worked with the processes of blown, cast & kiln formed glass and has received international acclaim. King’s preoccupation with the impact of light and colour in his work through form and pattern has resulted in many important works which have been internationally appreciated and included in major collections worldwide.
The talk will explore the directions that King’s work is taking in the current series of landscape influenced works. He will also discuss his current work as an author, guest lecturer, consultant and workshop leader.
