Ron Garrigues and Charles Glaubitz
December 6, 2005 - January 14, 2006
Opening Reception: Saturday December 10, 7-11pm
Ron Garrigues and Charles Glaubitz
Living in Tijuana and teaching in San Diego, painter Charles Glaubitz is comfortable toggling between two cultures, which gives his work what he calls, "hybridity." His influences---ranging from comic books, Hiayo Miyazake, Henry Darger, the Clayton Brothers, Mexican Exvotos paintings, childrens' art and Star Wars---can be detected in the vibrant palette of reds, yellows and other eye-watering colors that inform his pop-infused narratives. Charles' participation at Varnish is nestled between his recent mural/installation at Museo Carillo Gil in Mexico City---"Yo soy tu iluvia en tu desfile, la verdad en tu illusion (I am the rain in your parade, I am the truth in your illusion")---and an upcoming all-Tijuana artist show in May 2006 at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art entitled A Strange New World.

Sculptor Ron Garrigues' first group show was at the Oakland Art Museum in 1959, followed by a solo exhibition in 1961 at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. Ron's recent work continues his fascination with form with a sensibility of a reductionist, not a "modeler," with visual and social information paired together and then pared down to a absolute minimum. "There is a beauty in the skull," says Ron, "but it implies foreboding...the skull is a signpost on the road we travel." In the Garrigues bronze Elephant-Ivory Sacrifice the commercial and everyday tragic aspects of the black market ivory trade are distilled via a pair of truncated tusk stumps. Attached to the graceful line of the elephant's skull, they have been rendered to look as though they were designed with premeditation.
