Gloria Vanderbilt - Grounds For Sculpture in NJ
“As you look at Heart’s Desire, project yourself into the fairy tale world of Dream Box. What it means to me may not be what it means to you…that you will have to discover for yourself.” – Gloria Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt began her series of Plexiglas constructions, entitled 'Dream Boxes' in 1996 after she started having “interesting dreams which related to objects that she came upon in flea markets…” She would bring the objects to the studio and “assembled the dreams into some kind of order in Plexiglas boxes so that they told a story…” These works are incredibly beautiful yet slightly disturbing; like dreams themselves.
