Caterina Tognon is pleased to present The Richards, a duo show by Richard Marquis (Bumblebee, AZ, 1945; living and working in Seattle) & Richard Meitner (Philadelphia, 1949; living and working in Amsterdam). Marquis and Meitner have both been collaborating with Caterina Tognon since the 1990’s with gallery exhibitions or in public spaces.
This exhibition attempts to create a dialogue between two of the most important Masters of the Studio Glass Movement, who have developed their practice on different continents – Marquis in America (after spending time learning traditional techniques in Murano), Meitner in Europe, more specifically in Holland.
The two artists are internationally known as ironic, colourful, cheerful, highly original and always visually and technically ahead of their times. Their practices are regarded as a crucial in the development of glass sculpture as a critically recognised art form.
