Karen LaMonte. Glass Wonders

'LaMonte's life-size sculptures offer a compelling paradox, as the thick glass seems to contain absent bodies, imprints od which define the shape of each work's central void - an absence made visible through the translucent material and its record of what it once contained. The glass is cast from dresses found in thrift shops butrendered on a living body in order to evoke classical and Baroque drapery. Another series dealing with presence and absence involves glass casts of handheld mirrors; in these, ghostly "reflections" are etched into the surface. While she is best known for these two series, LaMonte has developed other works that deal with clothing and bodies, notably her bas-relief glass works and monotype prints she calls "Sartoriotypes."
Though born and raised in New York City, she now lives in Praque, where she uses unique facilities for large-scale glass casting and works with artisans who experiment with new processes.' (Glass Quarterly, Fall 2008. Vol 112.)
