Artist Profile

Monette Larsen

Glass sculptor

Monette will make her Talos debut in Natural Elements.

Monette draws on the imagery and wonders in the living world around us as a foundation for her wall installations and sculptures in glass.

Monette is influenced by molecular structures, nanoscale and mathematics, creating pieces that reference and hint at the natural world to remind us of the beautiful living world and the importance of preserving it.

Her work explores the idea that our perception of beauty in nature is connected with the conscious or unconscious recognition of underlying patterns and structures in the natural world.

My work is currently influenced by the underlying structures of corals, their shape, growth and movement in the sea. I explore different aspects of coral, for example, by exploring the mathematics of some corals shape, known as a hyperbolic plane, through crocheting.

I create shapes, growing into its own during the process. Layers of complexity are added through the making process like the forces of nature alter the perfect model in the natural world. Or I use many smaller glass elements to create wall installations that play with light and shadow to give an extra dimension and suggest movement.
