'Two Thirds of a Glass Key' and its imaginary lock draws us into a fairytale world of secrets and hidden wonderlands. The transparency of the glass key almost allows it to melt out of view. The key becomes a symbol of the relationship between the viewer and artist, a projection of the viewer's desire to unlock the secrets of the artist's mind, and the incomplete, ambiguous nature of interpretation.
