BELINDA SALMON HARDING

My work developed making large figurative works on paper and larger paintings. I was searching for my own identity and found that through sculpture I was able to become less figurative and more expressive. I always wanted transparency in my work, I left gaps of canvass showing, incomplete lines in my drawings and always looseness in the bronzes and stone figures; so glass has been a perfect material for me to use as I can see through the glass as much as I want to.  Working with glass and metal has opened up opportunities that I never dreamt of as I can now use my skill as a draftsman, my visual capacity to see what is going on in the gaps between forms and to learn some basic chemistry such as how materials effect each other. Glass has unique and opposite characteristics, it can be durable, fragile, strong, transparent and opaque, it sustains varying temperatures but can become fluid solid and allows light to influence its colour.
