Impel 5.3

Impel 5.3 | 36" x 28" | c Heather Hancock 2013 Impel 5.3 is installed and sparkling in a brand new home on the northshore.

Impel offers a microcosm of the social landscape; we are constantly changing and being changed by interactions with others. Ribbons of grout and glass dance through the piece, pulling the eye through twists and curves. The visual reference for this piece was wisps of smoke that twist and double back in a mesmerizing layers and lines. Strong contrasts between luminous glass and matte grout, curving forms and the light- (and attention-) catching iridescence and shine of glass take the work beyond decoration to viewer engagement.
