Shirley Klinghoffer - CRT Revisited
May 23 - October 11, 2015
Shirley Klinghoffer: CRT Revisited is an exhibition, opening at Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington, on May 23, 2015, that features the work of artist Shirley Klinghoffer. For many decades, Klinghoffer has explored life situations, particularly women's issues, through her work. The artwork in her CRT series was inspired by hospital forms used to support women's bodies during radiation therapy. With sensitivity and discipline, she has transformed these hospital forms into molds over which she has melted "skins" of glass that freeze a moment of extreme vulnerability. This was accomplished through a special glass technique called "slumping", a process where the pull of gravity impacts the formation of these bodily connected sculptures.
