Travail collaboratif de Mathieu Grodet et Tanya Lyons/The collaborative works of Mathieu Grodet and Tanya Lyons

For this exhibition Tanya and Mathieu are coming together to express common ideas and thoughts about their environment and the society that they live in. Using their shared passion for glass and gathering objects which brought them together in life, they reflect on the effects society is having on our physical and mental state while at the same time contemplating survival in this society. This overlap of life and art is explored through common pieces as well as with individual work using a variety of glass techniques and objects as well as illustrations.

Francis Muscat: ‘Men and Houses’ at Pentimento Fine Art

by Brad Copping

images by Christy Haldane

Francis Muscat’s recent solo exhibition at Pentimento Fine Art Gallery in Toronto ran from February 4th to March 7th.  It was his first exhibition in the new decade, and in “Men and Houses”  he showed a range of works from the very recent to those done in the last 5 years.

Taking from his recent artist statement on his work and this exhibition here is what he has to say.

Small House Series #61 10cm x 16cm x 34cm cast and laminated glass, Owen Sound Limestone.

Small House Series #37 9cm x 15cm x 45cm Indiana Limestone, cast and laminated glass

During my Fine Art studies at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario, I was introduced to glass.  I took stained glass as an elective.  The idea of painting with coloured light was very exciting.  In 1980 I enrolled in the Kiln Fired Glass course at O.C.A.  It was then that I knew this material is what I want to be working with and conquer.  There I learned the technical aspects of warm glass.  At this point I realized several pieces of flat panels in clear, plate and coloured glass.

Upon further discoveries I wanted to start to build with glass.  I knew that working in three dimensions was more gratifying for me so I needed to learn about adhesives and the structural integrity of glass.  There is an abundance of chemicals, adhesives, tools and machinery for industry that I could use to construct with and create sculpture.  Glass for me was the primary material to use.  I started to combine it with metals, wood, stone and other material and discovered that glass begs to be partnered with other material.  Stone and glass speak to each other in harmony.  There is a relationship there that is metaphysical; one comes to and goes from the other.

Glass by itself is inherently seductive, it draws you near, it begs to be understood, it is a magical material that is awe-inspiring.  This becomes a challenge for me, as it needs to go beyond its sexy self to become sculpture.  My challenge is to use it as any other artist’s material; hence I subdue its polished quality and take advantage of its translucent qualities.

The architect that I am not expresses himself through my sculpture.  I love to make buildings, small ones, and put them up on pedestals or stilts. They are proud and symbolic of our values.  The “Small House” series has been an ongoing expression of architectural shaped pieces confined in the simple “House” form. The houses fabricated out of cast glass, laminated glass, stone, metal, wood, and composites (plaster, paper, concrete, wax, glass, pigment, metal, epoxy resin, and natural elements), are symbolic of our concept of home.

left to right: "Show Off" 11cm x 8cm x 26cm; "One and a half Man Act" 10cm x 40cm x 60cm; "Embrace" 6cm x 18cm x 26cm; fused/ cast glass, wood, found objects

Singing Fisman Series #7 25cm x 30cm x 80cm Indiana Limestone, carved glass

The latest pieces are mostly built from concrete structures, the castable medium allows me to be lyrical, and to create an element of mystery and surprise as the light enters one side and exits on the other.  The composite pieces add another element to the metaphor of home, adding layer upon layer of colour and objects suggesting a passage of time, and paying respect to the Japanese esthetic of Wabi Sabi.

The human figure has also been an ongoing inspiration. The “Falling Angel” series, started 1991 and fabricated out of fused glass and wire, materialized from a dream of floating, ethereal human forms, messengers of hope and symbolic of human fragility.  In continuing the theme, these pieces allow me to make a statement using line, and form.  By working almost two dimensionally each piece holds different stories.  Other fused glass figurative pieces are used to celebrate “Heroes”, figures that made an impact in my life and whose stories I needed to tell.  Two pieces in this show are about the young man from Malawi, south-east Africa, who was able to create a wind driven turbine to generate electricity to bring light into his community and power water pumps.

The oldest work is from 2005.  The pieces in the “Fishman” series, carved out of limestone and glass, are about ritual, half men, half fish, and act as “Patron Saints” of song.

Landscape as Canvas – Engaging with Nature

By Ben Goodman

I think I’ve received a critique of one of my recent sculpture installations. I had selected a large, undulating grassy area for this 3-piece sculpture and was busily setting the work in place. Some movement behind caught my attention. When I turned to look, I was staring into the eyes of several sheep just six feet away, busily munching and observing an “artist at work!” This is one of the joys of engaging with the landscape as canvas. The unexpected – be it weather, variations in the land, or animals as critics! Several months after this installation and the sculpture is still in place. The sheep must be satisfied with my work or, at least do not consider it an intrusion.  This may stack up as one of my more favourable critiques.

Most sculptors yearn for a large space in which to place their work, and to be able to minimize the amount of visual “noise” surrounding it. “Don’t Fence Me In”, the title of a song from the 1930’s, is the lament often heard from sculptors. Interior space, whether in galleries or private homes, is often at a premium for placing sculpture. Three-dimensional work needs room to breathe. Outdoor installations meet this need admirably. Using the landscape as a “canvas” for sculpture installations provides a unique creative opportunity for artists by removing the confines of interior space and opening up a refreshing new freedom of expression, both in creative style and scale. Land sites provide diversity of setting – flat or undulating, open or forested, waterfront or hilltop and often with views of distant hills and the ocean. This landscape setting adds measurably to the enjoyment of the work by the viewer.

Several artists on Saltspring Island have commented on their own recent experience with outdoor art installations:

Margaret Day, gallery owner

“Since gardens and design play such an important part in so many peoples’ lives,  outdoor sculpture is an area of art collection that ought to be more fully explored. In the strongest pieces the artists react to the environment. Nature itself  becomes a component. The result is a three-way dialogue among artist, nature, and the viewer.”

Morley Myers, sculptor

“Sculpture takes on a new context when placed in an outdoor setting. It acquires an unexpected strength and can be very harmonious with nature. For the viewer, outdoor installations provide the opportunity to experience art without the perceived pretensions often experienced in a traditional gallery setting. So both the artist and the viewer gain an enhanced quality of experience.”

Ron Crawford, sculptor and painter

“For the artist, this experience (outdoor installations) connects us to a place, time, season – even a particular tree. A walk through a sculpture garden becomes an opportunity for surprise and contemplation”.

There are well over one hundred sculptures installed out-of-doors on Saltspring Island including the forty sculptures installed at Hastings House Country House Hotel in 2009, sites at other publicly accessible venues and sculpture placed in private gardens. While premature to call this recent interest in outdoor sculpture installations a movement or trend, there is clear evidence of a possible future direction. A refrain from the lyrics of Don’t Fence Me In – “Oh give me land, lots of land….”  has been heard and responded to – at least in part!

Ben Goodman lives on Saltspring Island. He is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art, past president of the Glass Art Association of Canada and past editor of the Glass Gazette (now the Contemporary Canadian Glass journal). His views on “landscape as canvas” have been influenced by his equestrian travels around the world. His work can be seen at

Tiffany.  This exhibition of 180 important works includes a series of magnificent large-scale ecclesiastical stained glass windows, seventeen of which are newly restored and part of the MMFA’s permanent collection.  The seventeen windows now painstakingly refurbished and on view for the first time at eye-level, were originally the largest Tiffany Studios commission in Canada, dating from the height of its production in terms of quality and innovative techniques.  Also on view are secular stained glass windows, magnificent blown-glass vases and lamps with shapes and decoration inspired by nature, examples of paintings and mosaics, original designs, and period photographs.  Not to be missed are some never before exhibited works from private collections, on public display for the first time.

Tiffany is well known for his love of glass and flair for publicity, making him a leader in American design and a central figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement, the American Aesthetic Movement, Art Noveau and Symbolism.  The exhibition of Tiffany glass at MMFA offers an examination of the early career of Tiffany, his travels (especially to Paris where his interest in glass-making began), his work as an interior designer for influential American clients, his relationship with Paris art dealer Siegfried Bing who helped to publicize Tiffany products in Europe, and his stained glass windows.  Visitors will learn how a stained glass window was made and see the various types of glass used.  Tiffany’s remarkable “Favrile” glass vases with their organic shapes and striking colour contrasts will also be on display.

Tiffany est bien connu pour son amour du verre et du flair pour la publicité, faisant de lui un chef de file dans la conception américaine et une figure centrale du mouvement Arts and Crafts, l’American Esthétique du Mouvement, Art Nouveau et le symbolisme. L’exposition de verre Tiffany au MBAM offre un examen de la jeune carrière de Tiffany, ses voyages (en particulier à Paris où son intérêt pour la fabrication du verre a commencé), son travail d’architecte d’intérieur pour les clients américains influents, sa relation avec Paris, marchand d’art Siegfried Bing qui ont contribué à faire connaître les produits Tiffany en Europe, et ses vitraux. Les visiteurs apprendront comment un vitrail a été fait et voir les différents types de verre utilisé. Tiffany’s remarquable “Favrile” vases en verre aux formes organiques et la couleur des contrastes frappants seront également exposées.

Tiffany Glass: A Passion for Colour is exhibited in an elegant, eye-catching arrangement of space designed to set off the brilliance of the stained glass windows, the myriad forms of the Favrile glass and the luminous colours of the lamps, each placed on its own pedestal to be seen from all sides.  Seen at eye-level, visitors can better examine and understand Tiffany’s windows for their design and technical ingenuity.  A catalogue is available as is an audioguide, which includes both commentary and a musical component.  An extensive programme of lectures and films, guided tours and a concert of chamber music is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition.  Details of these activities can be found in the brochure The Cultural Activities and on the museum’s website at
