Sky Glabush's work takes on portraiture, landscape, architecture, and still life. Flowers, trees, buildings and individual portrait sitters are rendered in vivid color, strong line, and dynamic shape. Built up in layers, Glabush's works on paper are rendered in pencil, gouache and watercolor. His recent paintings include passages in oil and sand that play off brilliant areas of translucent color laid down with a brush. Glabush's paintings connect directly to our experience of personal vision in painting. The power of the human hand, a sense of mental recording and visual improvisation is paramount as we consider his work. And, at the same time, we witness a unique sense of painting, one formed by Glabush's own experiences living and working in variety of places such as Saskatchewan, Belize, California and Amsterdam.
