Sally Glass, a native of Dallas, Texas, holds a BS in Psychology and Philosophy from TCU and is currently pursuing an MFA at UT Dallas. With a background in documentary and journalistic photography, Glass began her artistic practice with photographic abstractions and has most recently evolved into object-making and sculptural installation. Active in the Dallas art scene for several years, she has exhibited at Steve Paul Gallery, Bows and Arrows, Magnolia Theater Gallery, and CentralTrak.
Among Glass’ current projects is editing and producing semigloss., a regional arts publication. This quarterly will feature artists, educators, and gallerists covering artists, art spaces, and events in and around North Texas, highlighting the experimental and avant-garde.
Materiality pervades the conceptual arc of my work, which utilizes raw substances and non-traditional everyday items I find within my immediate environment. In contrast to my background in digital photography, my current focus lies with physical space—in the textural properties of materials and their dimensional presence as documents of the spatial world.
My most recent sculptural works, which are cast from functional objects using fabric and shellac, aim to abstract functionality by aesetheticizing and drawing attention to the symbiotic relationships that we share with objects. Through the cast fabric skin, objects and spaces are recontexualized, exploring notions of purpose, memory, and time.
