Maie-Ann Raun’s exhibition MOTHER (GLASS) RIVER opens August 26, 2004 in the Tartu Art Hall.
The impulse behind her creations is the dynamics of water. Running diagonally across the gallery floor is an installation of turquoise green glass waves, inspired by the flow of Emajõgi (Mother River) that runs through the city of Tartu. The glass is speckled with bubbles of air, reminiscent of foam and splashing water.
Red glass objects contrast the green river, bearing associations of riverside fall colours.
Open thru Sept. 13.
