This isn’t the primary time Jerram has made glass paintings associated to the pandemic. In March of final 12 months, he made a sculpture of the novel coronavirus, which causes covid-19. Each sculptures are part of the collection Glass Microbiology, which he’s been engaged on since 2004. The collection goals to ponder the worldwide affect of every illness it represents.
“By extracting the colour from the imagery and creating jewel-like beautiful sculptures in glass, a complex tension has arisen between the artworks’ beauty and what they represent,” Jerram’s web site states.
