Ever expansive in his Animalia quest, Slonem continues to boldly pursue his unique vision.
Divining new forms for his aesthetic muses in hand-blown glass, neon and other illuminating raw materials, the artist’s impressive career spanning almost five decades enters a new phase of growth. Disciplined yet explosive in his use of color, refined gestures yet still raw and wild, Slonem uses his new mediums of choice with the same deft hand that rocketed him into the coterie of New York art world luminaries of the 1970’s.
“This new body of work was borne out of these unexpected times. Given an unexpected opportunity to create work in an entirely new methodology, what has resulted is an artistic liberation of sorts. My established lexicon of forms have taken on new life in blown glass, in bronze, and other media, all in a visual culmination that is thrilling to me artistically. This moment in time has proven to be an impetus for an ever-expanding vocabulary of new work and I’m pleased to share it with you.”
