Gail Glikmann Biography
Gail Glikmann is a figurative sculptor who has lived and worked in Los Angeles her entire life. She has had a talent and passion for sculpture since she was 15 years old. In 1961 at 16, she received a scholarship to the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. When she entered C-SUN in 1962, there was not even a sculpture department! They created a three-dimensional art department to accommodate her. Upon graduation she got married and turned her attention to raising a family. During that time, she never stopped making sculpture, although she did not pursue a career in the arts. When her children were older, she began to teach. She taught sculpture at The American Jewish University from 1995-2010. From time to time she has exhibited at galleries or donated pieces to various charities, however her focus has been on making and not promoting the work. Now, at age 70, with a house full of phenomenal sculptures in all different mediums, she has
decided to make a serious entrance into the Los Angeles art world for the first time. She was immediately accepted into the Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) in January of 2016 and has since appeared in several shows and Galleries in the area. Artist Statement I have been an artist and sculptor all of my life. My work ranges from classical sculpture, bronzes, terra cotta, to mixed media. My work incorporates mythological and archetypal elements from many cultures and times. In the last 5 years, I have become fascinated with things that I have found in junk yards. As a result, my latest work has included mosaics and various found objects, metals, e-waste, etc. Often the found objects are the inspiration for a new piece, but I never stray too far from the human form, because that’s what excites me. There are certain animals who have appeared from time to I don’t know what direction my work will go, in the future, but I will always continue my love affair of the human form.
