JamFactory ICON 2020 Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder is the most recent in the ICON series, a solo exhibition launched each year during the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) festival, to celebrate South Australia’s most accomplished visual artists working in craft-based media. Tom Moore is one of Australia’s leading glass artists. Highly skilled in a range of glass working techniques, Moore uses traditional processes in innovative ways to create fantastical creatures, objects and worlds that can be both amusing and alarming. Using his playful and inventive imagination, Moore comments on the uncertainty of human existence in the face of environmental disaster and encourages us all to be more creative in our thinking and open to the experiences of wonder all around us. Playing with the paradoxical properties of glass, this exhibition presents hybrid life forms that challenge our perceptions of the world and our possible future – at once light-hearted and confronting, enchanting and grotesque, playful and insightful. JamFactory Icon Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder is supported by funding from the Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications through Visions of Australia and assistance from the South Australian Government through the Department for Innovation and Skills. Tom Moore acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts. Please note: The gallery is closed on Mondays.
