From creating interactive sulfur sculptures to manipulating molten glass, Romina Gonzales’ practice lies within facilitating the expansion of consciousness from a postcolonial lens. Her interdisciplinary work moves seamlessly between sculpture, painting, printmaking and performance— often portraying gestures and narratives through material responses. Born in Lima, Peru in 1989 and based in New York for the past 10 years, she works towards mindfulness, healing and social justice by questioning givens and offering alternative perspectives. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, New York Post, New York Magazine, Remezcla, Hyperallergic, among others, and included in the collections of The Museum of American Glass and Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Gonzales graduated from New York University after previously attending Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
Caroline Landau is a multidisciplinary artist that works with glass, video, and painting. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2013 with a BFA focused in painting, drawing, and printmaking. She completed her MFA from San Francisco Art institute in 2016. Landau currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Landau has worked at number of glass shops in the US, notably Starworks in North Carolina, The Pittsburgh Glass Center, and The GoggleWorks in Reading, PA, and as an educator at California College of the Arts. With the onset of Covid-19, Landau chose to work with scientific glass, making medical X-ray tubes. Landau currently works and blows glass at Public Glass in San Francisco.
Madeline Rile Smith uses glass as a performative vehicle to consider notions of intimacy, compromise, and embodiment. Informed by her background in music, she creates objects and videos that explore connection and isolation. Her work has been exhibited in venues throughout the US and internationally and has been featured in New Glass Review 41 and 35. She earned an MFA in glass at Rochester Institute of Technology, and a BFA in glass from Tyler School of Art. Madeline is currently an adjunct professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, teaching glass art. She has instructed glass working in schools and institutions throughout the East Coast, including UrbanGlass and Salem Community College.
