Jim Kalnin & Lucas Glenn
In this exhibition Kalnin investigates and challenges how we respond and interact with the natural world around us. Kalnin’s work consists of large semi-abstract acrylic and oil paintings along with a series of small watercolour paintings. Kalnin reaches into human cultures, religions, world views and ecological studies for thought and subject for his new series of paintings.
Jim Kalnin taught art for 22 years at Okanagan College, Okanagan University College and UBC Okanagan. Since retiring in 2009, Jim has rekindled his interests in making art, travelling and delving deeper into life’s great mysteries.
Lucas Glenn installation titled, ‘Goods for Men (Real Good Strong Men)’ looks at the media and consumerism in relation to male identity, and problematic attitudes associated with masculinity such as ego, patriarchy, and anthropocentrism. Glenn’s work brings together satire, pseudo-history, and humour.
Glenn graduated from UBCO in 2015 with a focus on installation art and philosophy.
