John McGlinn, “Abstract art is invented. As such, it is always personal. Whether my work looks representational, or artificial, or non-objective, it is still about invented objects in invented arrangements in stacked space.
Derived from pre-Renaissance thinking “space-stacking” has been my main visual theme since my BA and MFA in painting and printmaking. I will bring samples of recent work since moving to Iowa City, as well as a few purchased items that have influenced me over the years. Come to discuss: why abstract art and what does it mean?”
