‘ora (edge)’ by Galia Gluckman

Contemporary mixed media artist, Galia Gluckman’s,  ambitious new solo presentation ‘ora (edge)’ opens officially at 18h30 on Thursday, 3 May 2018 at Circa Cape Town.

Running until 26 May 2018, Gluckman’s solo features heavily focused and well-developed examples that have taken close to two years to complete. Many are large-scale and mark a developed and refined language of multi-faceted artworks on cotton paper with pigment ink, collage and acrylic paint.

Within the artist’s journey from order to disorder [or vice versa], one can sense a deep spirited investigation. Considering notions of self-reflection and meditation, Gluckman’s practice illustrates a poignant vision of ‘cellular memory, passion and what it means to be human’.

Through the use of various visual references, colour and complex artistic detail, there is a dazzling alchemy of contrasting colours and frequencies. This sharp attention to detail evokes sensations of both pure abstraction and a unique artistic vision of the world around us.
