Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Ishi Glinsky is a sculptor, painter and installation artist, who works and resides in Los Angeles, California. Born and raised in Tucson, AZ, Glinsky's work is often formed through handmade methods and inspired by materials, both industrial and organic. Each immersive installation, sculpture or painting are investigations 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.
Ishi Glinsky has shown at Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, CA, as well as produced several solo art shows and events in Los Angeles, CA. In 2015, Glinsky had the honor of creating a site-specific installation at the Tucson MOCA, entitled, c/o Ishi Glinsky.
