Not since Yves Klein (1928-1962) has an artist so boldly harnessed fire as a medium to construct a human portrait. The seven-foot tall anthropometry "Carol-Ann on Fire", by San Diego artist Robert Glick, is an abstract expose of the female spirit. The model appears to climb to new heights, poised in a delicate balance between uncharted boarders.
Glick's work has been shown at prestigious locations such as the Oceanside Museum of Art and Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York city. "Carol-Ann on Fire" is the giant of the exhibit, both in size and creativity, and revitalizes abstract portraiture in a way not seen in years.
When asked about his fire paintings, he responded: "when flames leap headlong into the void they leave behind an unsullied imprint, a shining moment - pure energy incarnate," an applicable description of his latest piece set in a salon-style show at the Del Mar Art Center.
The art exhibit begins August 1st through October 30th 2012. During gallery hours, Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM & Sunday - 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
