Particles-Carmen Vetter: Deep #3
Deep #3: 21" x 21"x 1.75", Kiln-formed Glass
Elaborate surfaces based upon pattern, geometry, and mapping characterize the works of Carmen Vetter. She employs glass powders as a medium, layering and removing material to achieve highly textural compositions. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Palm Springs Art Museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art, Bullseye Glass Emerge 2006, 2008, Bullseye Evolve 2016, and published in the Corning New Glass Review 31, 33, and 38. Vetter resides and works in Portland, Oregon.
My work is, at its most basic, a study of surface, texture, and pattern. Exposing and revealing, the removal of unanimated material discloses both the intimate and the unfamiliar, joining concept and process. I like the big picture. My work is a way of connecting the dots. I am inspired by the patterns of life, cycles of destruction and renewal, and the interrelation of everything. I am looking for connectivity, commonness, and relationship. The finished work could be observed as eroded stone, cellular structure, and lichens; or on a macro level as aerial views of cities, land formations, glaciers, and coastlines. The relationship between these surfaces and the things that underlay them--their unique histories, the unseen events that preceded them and created them, the mystery of what they are becoming--is what truly interests me. I seek the intrinsic.
