SKY GLABUSH | Surfacing
March 3 - April 14, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 6-9pm
In the Project Space, Sky Glabush presents Surfacing, an exhibition of three recent woven paintings comprised of cotton, wool and acrylic paint. The artist’s interest in weaving began as an investigation into the support of painting, where he explored ways to create his own material instead of simply accepting canvas or linen as the default painting surface. Glabush’s work examines the connections within modernist painting to both the large ideas of space and time, as well as the smaller connections to everyday textiles such as tablecloths and blankets.
Born in 1970 in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Sky Glabush lives and works in London, Ontario, Canada where he teaches studio art at Western University. Recent exhibitions include "The New Garden" at MKG127 in Toronto; "The Window is also a Door" at Prosjektrom Normanns, Stavanger Norway; "What is a Self?” at Oakville Galleries; and "The Painting Project" at Galerie de l'UQUAM, Montreal. Glabush's work is in many public collections including the Canada Council Art Bank, McIntosh Gallery, Museum London, Mackenzie Art Gallery, Mendel Art Gallery, The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, McCarthy Tetrault, and the Bank of Montreal.
