SAN JOSE, CA.- The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) presents Mapping Time: Doug Glovaski Works: 1995 2007 in the Focus Gallery and Cardinale Project Room. This significant exhibition marks the first comprehensive presentation of Doug Glovaskis work during the last 17 years. Glovaskis large-scale, intensely colored abstract paintings and works on paper are based on childhood memories and current-day observances and experiences will be on view from January 19 March 25, 2008. The ICA will host an opening reception for the artist on Friday, February 1, from 6 8 pm.
Glovaski pushes, pulls, wipes, scrapes and smears the paint on his canvases, openly revealing his active process of editing and refining. As a result, his works emit a sense of playful experimentation. But what resonates with the viewer is an intense sense of place and mood. Whether dark and somber or bright and playful, Glovaskis works leave a long-lasting impression.
Mr. Glovaski was born in Saginaw, Michigan. His family moved to the Bay Area when he was seven and he has remained here ever since. Glovaski currently lives in San Francisco. His paintings are included in numerous public, corporate and private collections throughout the country.
