Biography

Sky Glabush’s multifaceted practice concerns ways in which identity is formulated in the imagination and the imagination is embodied and performed. Sky Glabush works across many mediums including drawing, textiles, painting and sculpture. Murray Whyte of the Toronto Star writes of his practice: "If there’s a rule to be followed with Sky Glabush, the London-based polymath whose work has ever been a moving target of material and form, it’s to not be surprised by anything." Glabush studied art at the University of Saskatchewan and had early success with abstract work, which led to a residency in the Netherlands and several subsequent years in Amsterdam, where he began a series of paintings that examined the relationship between abstraction and socialist design.He returned to Canada, where he received an MFA at the University of Alberta in 2006; upon graduating, he moved to London, Ontario, where he is faculty in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. Recent solo shows include "What is a Self?" at Oakville Galleries, "The Window is Also a Door," at Prosjektrom Normanns in Stavanger Norway, and "A New Garden" at MKG127, Sky Glabush is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery in Toronto.
