Sky Glabush Background MKG127

MKG127 is pleased to present Background, the second solo
exhibition at MKG127 by London, Ontario based artist, Sky Glabush.

November 19 - December 17, 2011

Sky Glabush writes "My parents, who met on a commune in Sointula, British Columbia, were part of that generation that tried to imagine a new way of life by moving “back to the land,” constructing their own homes, and expanding their consciousness. In 1976, my father checked himself into the Angus Campbell Treatment Centre in Moose Jaw, and shortly afterwards discovered the Baha’i Faith. Starting from this personal, even diarist position where the polarities of hippy culture, recovery and religion converge in my memory, this work shifts into a larger question about the “the spiritual in art.” And rather than sealing off this question within the universal language of abstraction I have sought to pose it against the peculiar specificity and symbolic register of my experience."

Sky Glabush lives and works in London, Ontario where he teaches studio art at the University of Western Ontario. He has had solo shows at the Mackenzie Art Gallery, the Mendel Art Gallery, Arch 2 Gallery (University of Manitoba) and the Art Gallery of Windsor. His work is in many public collections among them the Canada Council Art Bank, Museum London, Mackenzie Art Gallery, Mendel Art Gallery, University of Saskatchewan, University of Alberta and the Bank of Montreal.
