Gallery4Culture is proud to present a solo exhibition by Klara Glosova. The installation titled It’s growing on me, combines ceramic sculpture with drawings and photographic prints. Glosova draws her inspiration from two seemingly independent worlds; the everyday stuff of domestic life and the murky realm of dreams. A journal of energetic sketches of her dreams has been translated into small scale ceramic figures, often presented in dramatic poses – as if wanting to break free from their heavy emotions and burst into life. Domestic life, on the other hand, is represented by linens bearing delicate texture of woven cloth and painted in familiar stripes and patterns. Framed by the photos of plants and flowers sprouting to life and into full bloom, the sculptural works lie on the intersection of conscious and unconscious words – as if positioned on the shoreline between dry land and deep ocean. Walking the fine line between the two realms the artist is trying to connect (and re-connect) here/now reality with her personal mythology, deeply buried beneath consciousness.
Klara Glosova is a multimedia artist currently working primarily in clay sculpture. Her work has been exhibited both locally and internationally. Beside NEPO House, she is the organizer of the annual NEPO 5k Don’t Run – a popular community-based art event. Klara Glosova efforts have mightily energized our regional arts community.
