Painter Dan Gluibizzi recently moved to Portland from Brooklyn, NY & Ampersand is very excited to present his first solo exhibition here in town.
Titled Our Time, the show features a large selection of Gluibizzi’s more recent watercolor paintings, all derived from anonymous digital photos
people post on the web. At surface his work is bright & whimsical, but at root it makes one think twice about the rampant exhibitionism we see
proliferating on the web. In this, it fits so well with many of our preoccupations here at Ampersand: the interplay between found materials &
voyeurism; the invasive nature of photography & the viral way that images spread on the internet; & the symbiotic link between pedestrian visual
culture & fine art.

Hope to see you!
