Polly Norman's elegant compilation of photographs represents 25 years of art making. Woven among these exquisite works she also shares her struggle with manic depression and passion for dance, an alchemy that inspired her to make remarkable images that "dance." Using a process entirely of her own invention, Norman first photographs objects or scenes through architectural glass block in black and white. On select pieces she adds a second layer of photograms and may also paint the photo surface, adapting 19th century hand-coloring techniques. "My art is filtered, shaped and bent through a unique type of glass. It is also filtered through a mind and soul that is at times tortured," says Norman in her introductory essay, Soaring and Crashing. Art historian and critic Bianca Sandino arranges Norman's works under the guise of three distinct dances: Cecchetti, Tango and Tarantella. George Slade, photography historian, contributes an essay on Norman, "Eye Play" and interview with author.… (lisätietoja)

I won this book from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review...thank you!
This is a glorious book that touches my heart in a very special way. The author Polly Norman suffers from major depression which is something I deal with every day. Ms. Norman reveals her pain by through her abstract art. She is a dancer and a photographer and she uses glass and paint to create visually stunning work. I admire this author/artist for being able to work through her struggle with major depression and create such beauty. I highly recommend this superb book to anyone who loves art and the resilience of the heart and soul. ( )

I have rarely reviewed works by anyone, and came to books available at Goodreads carefully, being interested in very few. I was delighted to win a copy of Polly Norman's 'Dances Through Glass', not the least because I have worked with many artists over the years and started out as someone whose visual literacy can be summed up as non-existent, and greatly enjoyed learning.
I wrote to the author telling her I had won and I looked forward to the book and she kindly replied informing me she had poured her heart and soul into the publication. I can see clearly the high level of design that has gone into this retrospective of an artist's work. This is a beautifully presented, large hardback.
There is something very alluring in this work, not the least the softening of edges in her hand painted gelatin originals, such a Burst Daisy which reminds me of the rainbow lollipops children can buy, and also evident in the abstracts such as Madcap and The Pianist, where, I am convinced, there are eyes and mouths in the soft-focus shapes.
In her foreword the artist discusses her illness and her journey through art and dance, back to mental health. You cannot really see illness in her work, unlike some artists. Her use of colour is arresting, and the way photographing through glass plays with shape gives us a unique sense of style. There are moments you feel she touches the eastern lacquer work and at others the purely abstract. She plays with dance in some of her drawings but in every one of her pieces you can see the rhythm, underlined by her photographs of actual ballet dancers.
If you love art, I think this book will always interest you. I suspect in art as in life, we see what we want to see and you will probably disagree with me on every point.
The artist also has a question and answer section at the back of the book for the reader to learn more about her motivations and her experiences.
