Karlyn Sutherland is known for her evocative sculptures, fused wall pieces and site-specific installations that explore light and shadow.
“The qualities and characteristics of glass allow me to explore and express ideas and experiences of architectural atmosphere, space and light in a way that no other material can quite achieve or permit.- Karlyn Sutherland
Whilst undertaking a PhD in Architecture, her research into the emotional power of place led her home to Caithness. Here, she was drawn to the idea of working in glass after enrolling on a master class at North Lands Creative in Lybster.
Harbour Road, Lybster (4) is from a new and experimental body of work exploring ethereal shades of light captured within abstract perspective forms that explore a physically unattainable viewpoint and a sense of disconnection from place.
