Alex Seton, Sydney Contemporary 2023

During a residency at the Glassworks in 2022, Sydney based artist Alex Seton was supported by Canberra Glassworks to produce nine new glass artworks for his exhibition Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt at the Lock Up in Newcastle. The works pay tribute to the architectural chandeliers that once adorned Anzac Clubs and RSLs, which were crafted by the now-closed Leonora Glassworks post WWII.

EVERYTHING WAS BEAUTIFUL AND NOTHING HURT, 2022
An exhibition of new work by Alex Seton that explores the possibilities of combining glass and stone contemplating memory, forgetting, and loss with the passing of time. Shown at The Lock Up in Newcastle, 2022, Melbourne Design Fair 2023 with Sullivan & Strumph, and Sydney Contemporary at Carriageworks, 2023.
