This installation of glass art and domestic life coming together is the third iteration in the series “Solace” by Josh Sands. Josh shared: “In the two previous artworks, I installed 600 individual strands of hanging glass spread out in a domestic space, a common setting used for quiet reading and meditation. The scenes were set with tables, couches and chairs, stacks of books, and a lamp. The glass as raindrops seemed to dance and play in an unexpected yet familiar way, leaving the viewer entranced and pondering the significance of the scene. The essence of this series is meant to capture the dazzling visual wonder of a rainstorm and the calming effect that such an event can have on quiet time. In this third installation, I continued with the basic storyline but added the element of an umbrella to speak to the isolation and personal feelings we have all been experiencing during the pandemic years.” Image: “Solace No. 3, 2021” by Josh Sands
