Natureʻs Gold


Nature’s Gold, is the first part of a series of installations by glass artist Darren Goodman at VAC.

Inspired by the natural forming glass tears created by the volcano, Goodman has hung his own “Tears of Joy” in the gallery.

Darren Goodman-Natures-GoldA tree hangs from the ceiling in the gallery right above a pile of black sand. Suspended from the tree are Goodman’s delicate drips of glass he calls “Tears of Joy”. Just below the glass, are golden leaves from the “Tree of Life”.

“We are all but a leaf on the Tree of Life, and you truly are Nature’s Gold” says Goodman.
