Ruth Bachofner Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Doug Glovaski. There will be a reception for the artist on Saturday, November 27, 4-6 PM.
Doug Glovaski’s abstract paintings merge rich, textural applications of paint with disciplined hard edges of minimalist color. As a whole, the paintings animate the gallery space as horizon lines shift up and down, and color intensities wane, erupt and play off one another; individually, each painting holds its own moody world of contrasts, depths, transparencies and gestures. Spatial push and pulls, color relationships and graphic and painterly gestures work symbiotically in the paintings. References to landscape, the paint itself, fabric and color theory merge to form an emotive force. Through his arduous process, Glovaski attempts to access and transport his viewers to the emotional core of the work, a theme threaded throughout the history of art, and a tradition into which Glovaski’s work is seamlessly entrenched.
Doug Glovaski is the recipient of the Pollock/Krasner Foundation Grant and his work is in numerous public collections, including the Achenbach Collection at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, the Fogg Museum in Cambridge, and the San Jose Museum of Art in San Jose, as well as corporate and private collections throughout the country and abroad.
