Visions West Contemporary is excited to announce our two concurrent solo exhibitions, Ledger Drawings by Ishi Glinsky and Migration by Rachel Denny, opening January 7th - February 15th, 2020. The exhibition will feature new work by Ishi Glinsky, known for his large-scale ledger drawings on paper. The show will also include the life-size textile animal sculptures of Rachel Denny's Migration. Please join us Friday, January 10th at 6–8pm as we celebrate this opening, and these talented artists.
Ishi Glinsky is a skilled sculptor, painter and installation artist, who works and resides in Los Angeles. Glinsky's work is often inspired by his materials, both industrial and organic, formed through handmade methods. Each work is an investigation into resourcefulness, permanence or continual evolution, all dependent upon the chosen material and its considered composition. While continuing to navigate through historical events and ephemera of North American Native tribes, Glinsky's work becomes a fusion of intertribal celebration and material exploration. As a primarily self-taught artist, Glinsky investigates traditional techniques of his tribe, the Tohono O'odham Nation, as well as other Nations to create contemporary homages to sacred events and practices.
Rachel Denny is a multimedia artist and sculptor heavily inspired by the natural world around us. She resides outside of Portland, Oregon and is best known for her "Domestic Trophies"—deer mounts covered in cozy cashmere cable knit woolens. Denny's work touches on the concepts of human intervention in nature, domesticity, femininity, and the increasingly pressing environmental issues present in our society. Her work allows the viewer to question their place in nature, and what the relationship between humans and the natural world entails.
