Brynda Glazier investigates the anachronisms that occur in traditionally accepted and cinematically enhanced social domains. “I am interested in societal anxieties concerning physiology, deceptive value systems, digital mania, and the manipulation of earth and space over time. My artwork bridges the uncertainties related to utopian ideals and the dystopian qualm by challenging the societal standards of beauty and the sublime.”
This concept has been a focus on Brynda’s art; having a severely deformed and mentally handicapped brother. “It gave me the gift of seeing beauty and humor in everything.” The various mediums she chooses are important in expressing the infinite, unpredictable, and ever-variant personality of human nature and its companions.
We went to visit her studio while preparing for the Inaugural Group show this August, and I must say it was an experience. Her two sculptures will be installed in the front windows of Gallery Hijinks until September 11th 2010. Check out what goes through the mind of this extraordinary sculptor, her process and inspirations!
The two sculptures, a boy and girl, (in progress boy sculpture seen above) are made with roughly 200 pounds of clay. They are built up slowly, using coiling techniques while constantly adding and subtracting from the form.
Please come by the gallery anytime between August 21st and September 11th, 2010 to see the finished products and installation by Brynda Glazier.
