Tell us about yourself!
My background is in fine art: mixed media, mostly painting. I established Kari Minnick Art Glass Studio in Silver Spring, Maryland in 2004. I recently relocated to my native coast, now residing and working in beautiful Southern Oregon.
What draws you to the material you work with?
As a painter, I find glass enables textures, transparency, and opacity with unparalleled options and richness. The sculptural aspects of glass working allow for combining 2D and 3D presentation.
What themes do you pursue in your work?
Abstraction, architecture, horizon lines in landscape, drawing, content - it’s always personal. Composition is key and the most challenging.
What is your dream project?
A large museum installation using ceiling floors and walls. The scope of the project would require collaboration. Any takers?
Why are you a member of GAS?
I’m a member of GAS to connect to the larger community of artists and educators working in but not limited to glass.
