Compounded Fractures
James Earley

Nov 3—Nov 20 2022

‘Compounded Fractures’ is an exhibition exploring the cumulative effect the decisions we make have on our lives. For every choice there can be multiple outcomes. These are weighed up, ahead of making a perceived ‘correct’ choice. Complex decisions can be plagued with indecision from doubt and uncertainty, leading to heightened, internalised stress.

As a material, glass is an excellent conduit to explore these ideas. It has an in-built tension due to the thermal stresses that occur in its formation. When a sheet of it breaks the tension is released through a series of linear fractures in an unpredictable and explosive manner. It is this moment in time that is captured within the series of works.
