David Reekie solo exhibition in Norfolk

International artist David Reekie, one of the UK’s leading glass sculptors, is holding a one-man show at the Corn Hall, Diss, Norfolk, UK, opening on 23 March 2024.

The show, ‘David Reekie: The Abstract Figure in Glass’ collects together David’s expressive drawings and glass sculptures, providing an opportunity to see a comprehensive body of work from an artist who has been working with glass for over 50 years.

David’s drawings and sculptures are inspired by the tensions and temptations of society that pull people in different directions.

“Drawings are key to all my work; they are the beginning where I have time to think and pull together emotions and frustrations of the complex world in which we live. My drawings are very rarely seen and this show is a great opportunity to bring together my 2D expressions with 3D finished sculptures.”

Although David’s work is seen across the world, it is unusual to be able to view both drawings and finished sculptures in one location in the UK.

There will be a chance to meet the artist from 2pm on the opening day (23 March) and the event runs until 27 April 2024

The Diss Corn Hall is at: 10 St Nicholas Street, Diss, Norfolk IP22 4LB
