The Arctic environment is the main inspiration behind my sculptural work. I try to capture the fleeting qualities and expressions in the transformation from liquid to frozen form. The optical qualities of glass give me space to highlight contrasts, the key elements of my work. The inner forms are often shaped to illustrate organic movement, frozen in time and space. My work is often experimental and I freely combine glass with other materials such as plaster, stone and metal. I hope to spark the imagination of the viewer and create the ideal flow of associations, encouraging the viewer to interact with my objects. Even though the final piece ends my journey, I hope it will continue for the viewer, Lene Tangen, Glass artist.
