Del Mar Art Center heating up with new art Reception to be held Sept. 8

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. 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.

“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. Don’t miss this gem of the collection at the artists’ reception Saturday, Sept. 8, from 6-9 p.m. at the Del Mar Art Center Gallery, Del Mar Plaza, 1555 Camino Del Mar, Suite 122; www.dmacgallery.com.
