Sky Glabush - Sun Weeds (description)

Sky Glabush explores the way painting “looks at” and captures its subjects, and how the imagination is translated through the conventions of pictorial representation. Looking through the prisms of abstraction, Modernist architecture and the spiritual in art, he revisits here the legacy of regionalism by giving the familiar new expression. Sun Weeds offers a view of backyards in London, Ontario. The suburban background is suffused with an ethereal luminosity, and a certain haziness envelops dormant nature gripped by autumn’s chill. Glabush captures an ordinary, domestic environment which, though devoid of flamboyance and human presence, sketches a sort of social portrait.
