Heller Gallery is pleased to present Metamorphosis, the gallery’s first solo exhibition introducing new work by Swedish artist Malin Pierre.  

The exhibition focuses on a group of eleven organic glass sculptures inspired by haute couture fashion and its exploration of volume, color and texture. Pierre’s molds are made by encasing soft sewn fabric objects, which she executes in blown glass.  She works in an exploratory manner with an intense curiosity for materials, their surfaces, weights and textures.  The billowing forms explore the contrast between soft and hard.  In tracing the way glass appears and behaves, the way it transitions from amorphous liquid to a precise imprint of the mold down to the original tactile surface of her sewn positive, Pierre’s pieces evoke soft, voluminous upholstery in the hardened glass, inviting touch and contemplation.  Many of her objects are also mirrored, emphasizing subtle sheen and color transitions.
