Booth # 328

For the 2022 edition of The Armory Show, Philip Martin Gallery will present an installation of large scale, oil-and-sand-on-canvas paintings by London, Ontario-based Canadian artist Sky Glabush. Glabush's work examines painterly archetypes like portraiture, landscape, and still life. We see flowers, trees, buildings and individual portrait subjects rendered in vivid color, by way of strong line, and dynamic shape. Glabush's paintings include passages in oil and sand that play off brilliant areas of translucent color laid down with a brush. Glabush's work connects directly with personal vision in painting: the power of the human hand; a sense of mental recording; and a feeling of visual improvisation is paramount. Glabush's own experiences living and working in variety of places such as Saskatchewan, Belize, California and Amsterdam have informed his work. Sky Glabush’s paintings were recently on view at the National Gallery of Canada; in 2024, Sky Glabush’s work will be the subject of a touring solo exhibition organized by Museum London (London, ON). This is Glabush's Sky Glabush’s first solo show in New York.
