Succulent Color Field

Artist

Name: Molly Burke
Statement: The ability for glass to be transformative is why it has fascinated humans for centuries, for this work I rely on that quality and also on my observations of nature. I have a particular interest in how simple shapes are seen throughout our environment in a variety of ways. The accents of small glass bits emerging from the beautiful color field of the larger smooth glass form are meant to replicate the tentacles of a sea anemone, the plump leaves of a succulent, or the gathering of cells viewed under a microscope.

The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority today owns the largest contemporary collection of local art in central Ohio. All of the pieces are on display in the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Hilton Columbus Downtown and the three Convention Center parking garages. The collection is the result of a communitywide call for art, overseen by a committee of community members and implemented by collection curators James and Michael Reese of Reese Brothers Productions. The artists represent the diversity of the Columbus community, cutting across age, gender and race.
