Ned Cantrell, originally from the UK, now lives in Denmark with his wife and growing brood. He was introduced to me by Anna Merete Groenlund, Groenlund Gallery, Denmark's most important gallery for glass sculptors. Ned's first exhibition with us last year were two works related to his aspirations as a new-found father, "Rocket Ship Baby" and "Jantelov." With his new work, playing with use of the graal technique, Ned joins the growing number of young artists whose work clearly addresses the visual vernacular of our contemporary value systems with imageries that surprise us with humor and reflection. We love Ned's sculpture and hot work and continue to support his artistic efforts (if you're attending SOFA Chicago 2008 this year, his work will be on exhibition there too!).
