Artists / Chris Pantano

Chris Pantano at Work

Chris Pantano has been a professional glass artist for More than 30 years.  His first international exhibition was in Singapore in 1986 and he has since exhibited in France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan and North America.  In Australia, he is recognized as one of Australia's leading collectable glass artist.  He has built a global reputation as a master craftsman with a strong emphasis on colour, pattern and story.

The inspiration for Chris' work comes from a variety of sources - including the unique qualities of glass itself, especially in its molten state.  For Chris, the endless ways glass provides to play with colour, form and texture is a great avenue for creative expression.  He is a master at taking advantage of the many unexpected effects that result from playing with colour and creating forms and textures.

Chris has been influenced by his lifelong interest in philosophy, anthropology, ancient cultures, the development of writing and language and the universal use of symbols and forms in art across all continents. He references mysticism, science and the art of ancient cultures in his ongoing creative adventure. Much of his inspiration also comes from the rich diversity of Australia's natural beauty -- the reef, the rain forest, wildflowers, the Outback and the colours and textures of Australian landscape.

Chris' work is highly regarded by private and institutional collectors around the world. These include the permanent collection in Australia's Parliament House in Canberra; the Queensland Art Gallery; Northern Territory Art Galleries; The McGaugherty Glass Collection at Latrobe Regional Gallery, Victoria; The Dr Robert Wilson Collection at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Collection Ludwig in Hannover, Germany; and Koganezaki Glass Museum in Shizuoka, Japan.
