The Knowing, Seeing, Painting (Glass as Canvas) Exhibition is an international project aiming
to present the artistic outcome of different painting and drawing techniques in combination with
glass.

The mainstay of the exhibition are works created by students, some of them already
graduates, under the guidance of Slovak artist Palo Macho within his “Painting on Glass” subject at
the Glass Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava (VSVU).

These individual author works follow different themes and techniques and are often
combined with innovative means. You can find works using transparent paint on glass panes,
drawings made with glass powder, pen drawing using enamel, lustre, melted glass, photographs
transferred to glass… You will come across works using embroidery, as well as footage the result of
digital painting on a monitor. The quality and scale of the experimental painting orientation of the
broad Glass-related programme of study at Bratislava’s VSVU, is remarkable, even at an international
level.

For this reason, the displayed collection is complemented by other artists in this field. Worth
mentioning are various artists working at prestigious international schools teaching glass techniques.
For instance, Josef Divín from the Secondary School in Valašské Meziříčí (Czech Republic), Japanese
glass artist Kazushi Nakada from Aalto, Finland’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Michaela
Spružinová from the Glass Design Studio at Tomas Bata University in Zlín (Czech Republic), as well as
Michael Rogers, who worked at Japan’s Aichi University for many years and now is a professor at the
Rochester Institute of Technology in New York (USA).
