From 12 March 2015 artist Galia Gluckman makes her solo debut at the Everard Read Gallery Cape Town. Since joining the Everard Read in August 2014, Gluckman has taken part in two group exhibitions, this however will feature a new body of artworks to be shown in conversation with fellow Everard Read artist Penelope Stutterheime.
The official opening of the exhibition will be at 18h30 on Thursday 12 March 2015. Gluckman will be doing an artist’s walkabout at the gallery on Saturday 21 March, from 11am till 1pm.
Gluckman produces large-scale, multi-faceted artworks in her medium of choice: pigment ink on cotton paper and collage. These pieces reflect varied contemporary concerns. Gluckman highlights ongoing creative and social conversations through her exploration of atmospheric and emotive themes. Wide-ranging in their environmental and social references, they draw upon contemporary notions of the passage of time and also reference the creative subcultures of the global community. The viewer is invited to consider the dialogue surrounding mass production versus the handcrafted; oscillate between her abstraction of natural and man-made habitats; and follow her reflections on the tension between order and chaos.
