‘I’ll make it my own’: Art glass sculpture makes its mark on UK gallery
A glass sculpture made by the artist of the iconic painting by Pablo Picasso has been made its own at a gallery in central London.
The piece, titled The World Is My Body, is made from glass and has a glass frame on the front of it.
A glass plate is affixed to the front to form the frame, and the sculpture is wrapped in plastic wrap.
The work is part of a series of works created by the Danish artist in collaboration with the London School of Art, which are on view through November 1.
The exhibition opens on November 3.
“I’m not interested in being a commercial piece.
I don’t care what people think.
I just want to make something beautiful.
It’s the same as painting in the abstract.
I want to show people what I can do,” said Jørgen Veen, the artist behind the work.
The artist told the Guardian: “My life is about making things.
It doesn’t matter what colour I paint, what style of painting I do.
The exhibition is being exhibited at the British Academy gallery, which is in London’s Soho district. “
If people ask me why I do this, I will tell them the reason: I’m making something beautiful, something beautiful to look at.”
