WILLIAM HALSEY AND CORRIE MCCALLUM, CHARLESTON EXPRESSIONS MAY 27- JUNE 17
The George Gallery presents Lori Glavin’s solo exhibition
“Pink Window” at 54 Broad Street
April 29-May 22
April 13, 2021–Charleston, SC: Let’s try this again, Lori Glavin’s solo exhibit was originally scheduled to open on March 26, 2020, and we all know what happened then. Glavin has sent us some new works to add to “Pink Window” to freshen things up and now we are ready to show it off. This is a great opportunity to experience this collection in our new second floor exhibition space at 54 Broad St. The exhibit will be on view from April 29- May 22.
My abstract paintings and monotypes are inspired by a fresh examination of the familiar. A neighborhood walk, the delicacy of a shadow on a wall, and the observation of pattern in my knitting projects, all are starting points for constructing an image. Influenced by the repetitions and rhythms of domestic life, I collect, combine, and sort; alternating between large shapes and small bits to make an arrangement of nuanced color and shape that becomes a monument to minutiae.
My process is a visceral one: intuitive, contingent, and unplanned. Tilted rectangles are stacked and skewed, cross- hatched planes imitate threads that weave under gestural lines and nudge up against bulbous shapes. I build my surfaces through addition, subtraction, scraping, layering and wiping away; often revealing surprises along the way. Working in several mediums – textiles, printmaking, collage, painting – enriches my understanding of materials and encourages me to take chances. –Lori Glavin
“Pink Window” includes a series of oil paintings on both paper and canvas and a few examples of her printmaking. Consistently pushing herself creatively, Glavin is always finding new techniques to express her relationship with form and color.
