GLIMPSED THROUGH LIQUID
A SOLO EXHIBITION OF NEW WORKS
BY GRAHAM CALDWELL

ON VIEW AUGUST 5 - OCTOBER 7, 2017
please support
our charities

Graham Caldwell was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1973. He grew up in Washington DC and
received a BFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1998.

“The largest part of the eye is called the vitreous humor. Vitreous means having the attributes of
glass. In my work the opposite is also often true; that glass has attributes of the body and the
organic. Much of my work is based on imperfect, interconnected organic systems that take the
form of bone, plant tendrils or blood vessels being gently pulled on by gravity. Using glass to
produce these systems with a grotesque or disturbing undercurrent introduces the push and pull of
an inherently beautiful medium and dark subject matter. “

Graham Caldwell has had solo shows at Martos Gallery and the Agnes Varis Art Center in New
York; G Fine Art, The Millennium Arts Center, and Addison Ripley Fine Art in Washington DC; Bank in
Los Angeles; Luis de Jesus Seminal Projects in San Diego; and Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts
Forum in Santa Barbara, CA. Collections include: Arsenal Contemporary Montreal, Katten Muchin
Rosenman LLP, Dickstein Shapiro LLP, Certus Bank, Arington County, VA Public Art Permanent
Collection, ART in Embassies, U.S. Department of State, Permanent Acquisition for US Embassy in
Skopje, Macedonia and Kiev, Ukraine, as well as the United States Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
