Lewis Batchelar: Refract


JamFactory Tarntanya/Adelaide
19 Morphett St, Adelaide

17 Sep 23

In celebration of the talented Alumni from the JamFactory Associate Program, each year during the South Australian Living Artist Festival, JamFactory presents a solo exhibition of work by a selected early career artist. New Zealand-born glass artist Lewis Batchelar completed the Associate Program in the Glass Studio in 2016 and has since forged a rich glass-blowing and cold-working practice.

 In Refract, Batchelar presents a new collection of glass-based furniture, lighting and objects that focus on form and colour application. Drawing inspiration from the Fresnel Lens, Batchelar combines the refractive qualities of glass with a distinctly mid-century modern aesthetic in the creation of his furniture and lighting collection. The accompanying series of glass objects explore colour play through the layering and transparency of fundamental shapes, and are influenced by the paintings and studies of German abstract artist and theorist Josef Albers (1888-1976).

We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the lands and waters of the Adelaide region.
