Kate Maestri is an architectural glass artist who is widely respected for her ambitious made-to-commission, site-specific public and private art projects. She often works at large scale and has frequently collaborated with architects and engineers to create artworks which are integral to a building. Maestri is also known for her use of intense, glowing colour.
Colour in Architecture – Glass by Kate Maestri highlights her growing interest in smaller interior works. This solo show at Contemporary Applied Arts – where she is a long-standing maker member – also celebrates twenty years of her artistic practice and nods to the fusion of art, design and craftsmanship in her work.
Maestri says: “I have always been fascinated by the interplay between colour and light. It has inspired and shaped my creative process as an architectural artist working in glass.”
Kate Maestri can take commissions through CAA and will be available for appointments at the gallery to discuss ideas.
For this exhibition she has partnered with two specialist design companies whose work complements the glass sculptures on show: People Will Always Need Plates, who are best known for their architecturally-inspired homeware, have re-created the interior of the Isokon penthouse with illustrations, drawn to real life scale, on the gallery walls. They provide a context to Maestri’s glowing, three-dimensional glass wall sculptures. Bespoke lighting is provided by headline sponsors humanlumen, a collective of lighting professionals and experts who bring together art, science and technology to create expressive, sustainable and efficient concepts in light.
