Glass Axis Presents “Student & Recent Graduate Showcase Exhibit”


Kelsey Finnie, a 2013 Ohio State University graduate, kickstarts Glass Axis’ “Student & Recent Graduate Showcase Exhibit” series with her Spontaneous Actions: Doodles in Glass exhibition. Finnie’s exhibit is a three-dimensional personification of the act of doodling on a page as she lets the artwork create itself. 

Kelsey explores the use of glass cane, which is traditionally used as a surface decoration in vessels, to draw through space. Finnie’s free form cane doodling leaves the margins of her notebook to create an all encompassing experience of walking through a drawing.

“Doodles are spontaneous in action. The thought is about bringing doodles to life and in the present,” addresses Finnie, “I don’t have a plan when bending and shaping them and even setting them up; it’s a very spontaneous and organic experience and form.”

The exhibit is presently on display in the massive Glass Axis art center through April 26. Whether you are a fellow alumnus of Finnie, want to show support for young adults expressing their ever-expanding ingenuity, or care to explore the adventurous talent of the artist, the enthralling Spontaneous Actions: Doodles in Glass is sure not to disappoint.
