Urban Totems

By Frank Priscaro

Werner Glinka works in at least three dimensions. With “Urban Totems,” his pieces create strong spaces in the physical world, certainly, but they also invoke other, less tangible realms as well. While exploring the dimensionality of surface and shape, Glinka’s work holds the door open for symbol, emotion, culture, sex and spirituality. Some pieces recall Asian influences. Others reference more primitive, native cultures. Still others have the dimension of prayer, or architecture, or magic. All are more than they appear.
