Rod Glover/ Ungrounded / Studio H

Studio H presents a solo show by:
Rod Glover
April 17 through May 12, 2010
Opening Show: April 17 from 6PM to 9PM
"Diaspora 1" 

Rod Glover's paintings simplify the complexities of life without the need for representational depictions. He constructs his work using abstract shapes and color. "Abstract shapes have undeniable power. The orientation or action of a shape evokes conflict, balance, anxiety or harmony. In shapes we perceive ourselves, and they become the archetypes of existence" explains Glover. The shapes in Glover’s work seem to float in space that he imagines to be infinite. The forms are in movement through time. The shapes speak of many things: relationships, solitude, confrontation, awakening, joy, stillness, order or chaos.
Glover's work is influenced by early geometric or reductive abstractionists. Painters such as Kandinsky, Malevich and Moholy-Nagy used geometric shapes to reject illusionist practices in the belief that shapes could convey expressive feelings and ideas without the need for recognizable or objective forms.

Studio H exhibits emerging artists on the cusp of realizing major breakthroughs both in their individual work and in contributing to major contemporary artistic movements. Currently, in 2010, the Spring and Fall showing seasons will connect exceptional DC based artists with their surrounding community. In 2011, Studio H will diversify its pool of talent by featuring the work of national and international artists who also straddle the line between the ordinary and the trendsetting.
