Artist Galia Gluckman’s ambitious new solo presentation ‘ora (edge)’ opens officially at 18h30 on Thursday, 3 May 2018 at CIRCA Cape Town.
Running until 26 May 2018, Gluckman’s solo features heavily focused and well-developed examples that have taken close to two years to complete. Many are large-scale and mark a developed and refined language of multi-faceted artworks on cotton paper with pigment ink, collage and acrylic paint.
Within the artist’s journey from order to disorder [or vice versa], one can sense a deep spirited investigation. Considering notions of self-reflection and meditation, Gluckman’s practice illustrates a poignant vision of ‘cellular memory, passion and what it means to be human’.
Through the use of various visual references, colour and complex artistic detail, there is a dazzling alchemy of contrasting colours and frequencies. This sharp attention to detail evokes sensations of both pure abstraction and a unique artistic vision of the world around us.
Gluckman’s work has been featured in various design and art publications and she is represented in many private and corporate collections in Australia, Dubai, Israel, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and the USA. In South Africa, this includes some of her works in the Leeu Collection Franschhoek, M & C SAATCHI ABEL Collection, Rupert Collection, South African Presidential Collection and The Spier Arts Collection.
Her forthcoming show marks Gluckman’s second presentation with Everard Read Cape Town, and her first ever within the CIRCA Cape Town space that was launched in November 2016. Her debut solo at Everard Read / CIRCA Johannesburg will open in the latter half of 2018.
Be sure to visit Everard Read / CIRCA before ‘ora (edge)’ ends on 26 May 2018.
Gluckman will lead an exhibition artist walkabout at 11h30 on 5 May.
