Doug Glovaski: Mapping Time
January 15 – March 18, 2008
This exhibition marks the first comprehensive presentation of Doug Glovaski’s work during the last 17 years. Glovaski’s large-scale, intensely colored abstract paintings and works on paper are based on childhood memories and current-day observances.
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, Glovaski’s 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.
