Glass was initiated by ideas of exploring transference between bodies and objects and the early Dada performance works of Sophie Taeuber-Arp.  Focusing on the kinaesthetic qualities of still shapes and informed by the growth of form in nature and Animist ideas of sentient embodiment; the work presents as a moving work of biomorphic abstraction; a shuffling, dancing painting.
