Sky Glabush

Solo exhibition
Opening: Thursday, April 26, 2018, from 5h30 to 8h30 pm
Exhibition: April 26 to June 2, 2018

Sky Glabush’s multifaceted practice concerns ways in which gesture and biography grapple with art history—particularly high Modernist painting—as well as with architecture and spirituality. Primarily a painter, Glabush studied art at the University of Saskatchewan and had early success with abstract work, which led to a residency in the Netherlands and several subsequent years in Amsterdam, where he began to paint local architecture. He returned to Canada, where he received an MFA at the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 2006; upon graduating, he got a teaching job at the University of Western Ontario in London, and did a series of large-format landscapes of local mid-century houses that recalled Jack Chambers and Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald. More recent work has strayed from such classicism to explore tentative, expressionist actions in a variety of media.
