“The pieces are fragments of story lines… I want to create a fantastical scene, one that takes you right to the edge of reality, but doesn’t let go of you. You are given just enough information to build your own storyline, but not so much you can’t follow it.”

Elias Hansen (born 1979 in Seattle) is an American artist who studied at Whitman College.  After dropping out of school to work on a ranch, he returned to the Northwest and spent 10 years working in various glass studios.  He now lives and works in upstate New York.  Elias’ art oscillates between the small, deteriorated found object and the delicate, hand-blown glass sculpture, neutralizing the contradictory status of the precious to the discarded.  Dysfunctional and beautifully imperfect, his elaborate structures and installations channel an ongoing relationship with everyday objects, and create a sophisticated visual language around the familiar.
