On Monday evening, Arizona Glass Alliance will host a presentation by a young artist who is one of the “cutting edge” artists working in glass today, Joseph Ivacic. Joseph’s work challenges the viewer to see things differently, both from a subject and content point of view, as well as the fact that, while his work is made from glass, it certainly doesn’t look like traditional glass. Take a look at Joseph’s piece shown below and you’ll see for yourself.
Joseph describes his work this way: “I create art to get the viewer to think. The narratives of these pieces are inspired by contemporary life, inviting the viewers to place themselves within the work. My compositions of faux installations are filled with stenciled text and imagery providing the viewer with subtle hints that the work is not what they perceive. Our modern day truths are what we say they are and our sense of reality is skewed based on our perspective. To me the simplest way to sum that up is with the moniker “Paradigm Shift”.
Joseph’s work is represented by Habatat Gallery as well as five other galleries around the country, and his work was shown at the 2018 SOFA exhibition in Chicago. Joseph’s sculpture has also been included in exhibitions at the Fort Wayne Art Museum and the Imagine Museum of St. Petersburg, Florida.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity to get to know a fascinating young artist and his non-traditional work.
