Follow Rose-Mary As reported in earlier issues, Rose-Mary Faulkner was the winner of the 2018 National Emerging Art Glass Prize for her work titled ‘Continuum,’ an exquisite 3-metre installation of two panels in kiln-formed glass. Rose-Mary was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to attend master classes at North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland, one of the world’s most renowned centres for the practice and development of art glass. The Canberra Times of 25 September 2018 mentioned Rose-Mary in two reviews. The review of the 2018 Hindmarsh Prize notes that she was a finalist and says “There are a number of artists in the exhibition who use glass as a "canvas" for imagery. The special properties of glass in reflecting and distorting light make it a very seductive medium. Faulkner’s set of panels Bare 2-4, 2017 uses layered photographs and the soft focus of diffused light to trace the con- toured landscape of the human body.” The review of the 2018 Craft ACT mem- bers exhibition includes “………. have a romantic lyricism. Her three works in blue enamel on glass (In the distance iv, v, vi, 2018) are painterly in expression. The artist creates, through the delicate drift of the mountains and clouds, an impression of infinite space. Rose Mary Faulkner’s two works Surface and Form 4 & 5, 2017) share this lyricism of expression. Faulkner’s painterly surfaces that decorate her two dimensional roundel-like shaped pieces of glass, display images that could be landscapes as the colours dissolve and reform in the light.
