In this latest body of work Nejat Kavvas celebrates the ‘art of making’ through a joyful collection of sculptural works skilfully created in cast glass, pate de crystal, and bronze.
Kid in a Lolly Shop sees Kavvas engage with his childhood impressions of art, the notion that creating “art for art’s sake” brings the maker joy and a sense that possibilities are endless. This ethos is reflected in Kavvas’ multi-disciplined practice that includes, but is not limited to, working in glass and bronze. Kavvas has spent many years studying and mastering each discipline’s varied techniques. The sculptures in this exhibition celebrate that intersection of self-expression and studied methodology.
