Melvin Anderson. Transparent Decorative Objects

Event organised by Melvin Anderson
In Melvin Anderson's work, Northern European clarity meets Italian warmth, and traces of Africa mingle with memories of the Caribbean, his birthland. The forms flow surprisingly and unexpectedly like a stream of consciousness. They are sculptures that defy the hardness of glass, created with the refinement of great performers by master glassmakers Andrea Zilio of the Anfora furnace in Murano and Richard Price of Van Tetterode in Amsterdam.

Melvin Anderson (Aruba,1944), is the textile-glass artist par excellence. His works produce the effect of a heady cocktail whose ingredients are innate talent, mastery learned at the Fashion Academy in Amsterdam and a free and combative nature. The ancient broderie to which he was accustomed from his early profession as a textile designer were understood and interpreted in glass by great glass masters in Murano, Amsterdam and Bohemia.
