The Cleveland Museum of Art and University Hospitals Case Medical Center have both acquired “magical, writhing” pieces of recent work by renowned glass artist and CIA Professor Brent Kee Young.
You can already find Young’s remarkable glasswork in the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Art Institute of Chicago, and other museums across the U.S., Spain, and Japan. And now, two more prestigious Cleveland institutions will display pieces from Young’s current series of work.
Both CMA and UH acquired work from Young’s Matrix Series, in which bold, iconic forms are made from quarter-inch strands of clear Pyrex glass.
“I chose Matrix Series: Catenary Ellipsoid… Bi [pictured] principally because of the profound beauty of its form and composition,” said Stephen Harrison, Curator of Decorative Art and Design at the Cleveland Museum of Art. “Of all the works in Brent’s current series, this one seems the most serenely beautiful to me… carefully balanced, complex, intricate, glowing. It’s hard to understand how he achieves these qualities in a single work.”
An incredible artist who has been recognized internationally, Young is professor and head of the glass department at CIA. He has taught at the Institute since 1973, when he earned his Master’s Degree from the respected ceramics school at Alfred University in New York.
