Web Description: 
Sunlight streaming through the living room windows of the artist’s family home in northern Scotland inspired Harbour Road, Lybster. Sutherland remembers this spot with warmth, but as an adult, she experiences it at a remove. The fused glass panels re-create the spatial relationship between the living room’s corner windows and a picture frame that hangs beside them. Dimensionally flat, but rendered in a startling perspective that makes them appear to project beyond the wall, the panels reproduce the emotional detachment Sutherland feels from this once-beloved location.
