August 2019 | Marianne Glick: Inspired by Music
Like many artists, Marianne Glick often listens to music while she paints, allowing the flowing, organic, and expressive movement to inform her colorful abstractions. The energy from the music is clearly transferred into her acrylic on canvas neo-expressionist paintings as is apparent in the image opposite this text, Slip Sliding Away – which she created while listening to the Paul Simon tune. For her solo exhibition in Gallery 924, the new artwork will had yet another musical layer. Glick is a fan and supporter of the Cabaret, our neighbors just feet away, and often attends to hear her favorite Broadway stars perform. For this new body of work, she chose to focus on the Cabaret style music the venue champions, with a special emphasis on the Broadway actor/singer Caissie Levy who performed at the Cabaret in August 2019. This new work from Glick visually explored the music of Broadway resulting in colorful abstractions created in her signature style.
