Abstract Painting
and Glass Retrospective
by Daniel Edler

Friday, June 22, 2018 through Friday, August 17, 2018
Wellington & Muranyi Galleries


For many years Daniel Edler of Cedarville, Illinois has been known both locally and nationwide as a glass artist, and has made his living as such. In addition, he as always enjoyed painting. This exhibition of both glass work and paintings, reveals the multiple facets of his creativity. The paintings included in this exhibit are those from the last decade, particularly from his
Spacial, Growth, Tubular, Linear, and Double Images Series. Several of the glass sculptures will reflect the subject matter from his Spacial Plane Series; other pieces will give an overview of various glass series he has created.

The sculptures and paintings are involved with the overlapping of opaque and transparent planes and the interweaving of shapes, which create a real or an illusion of three-dimensional space. Edler sees the paintings through an infinite plane, with all the shapes existing in "random chaos." All the shapes are at the same time moving toward the possibility of a solidified form - a sculpture. He comments, "It's a thought process; and I look forward to everyone enjoying my exhibition."
