Alexander Hotel CityWay Gallery curated by Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art
Carly Glovinski's highly realistic drawings and sculptural objects explore and celebrate the patterns and organizing system found in everyday objects such as woven rugs and dish towels, the webbed strips of a beach chair, and objects such as takeway food cartons. Her use of trompe l'oeil techniques bend perceptions of common objects to create awareness of the act of "seeing" and the relationship of concept, materials, and the iconography of objects. There have been many times when exhibition visitors have mistaken her work for the real thing and sit on them, in the case of "beach chairs", thinking they are real; or thrown them away, as in the case of a "food takeaway carton".
Glovinsky has had recent solo exhibitions at Carroll & Sons in Boston and 25ArtSpace in Portsmouth, NH. Her first solo show in New York City, "How to Build a Fire" will open in February at Morgan Lehman Gallery.
Glovinski's exhibition runs from January 11 to June 23, 2018
