The Future Perfect gallery program has collaborated with Seattle-based artist John Hogan to produce a new series of exclusively commissioned glass furniture and sculptures. Launched in New York on May 1 to coincide with Frieze New York and NYCxDESIGN, the new designs will be presented as an experiential installation that will transport viewers to The Future Perfect’s new Los Angeles outpost – Casa Perfect – through virtual reality technology.
Hogan’s debut solo exhibition at The Future Perfect will feature one-of-a-kind glass sculptures and his first foray into furniture design, notably a limited edition series of tables that fuse hot glass sculpting and cold-working techniques, allowing Hogan to manipulate the material in both molten and solid states.
Trained in traditional glassblowing methods at the acclaimed Toledo Art Museum, John Hogan pushes the boundaries of glassmaking techniques through his cutting-edge innovation and experimental use of light and color. Hogan’s extensive technical knowledge and rich understanding of the optical qualities of glass allow him to morph simple glass forms into complex transformative objects.
