Power deviation

 Shelley James explores new techniques and the creative possibilities of glass and digital imagery in a group of pieces made during her time as artist in residence at the University for the Creative Arts with new retinal scans generously provided by the School of Vision Sciences at the University of Cardiff.  The work is complex in form and manipulative energy, and expresses the artist's command of technique as well as her humanistic motivations.  Shelley is also artist in residence at the Bristol Eye Hospital, where 'vision and perception provide the central inspiration for my work'.
