"Antipodes is a serie of graphic experiments inspired by wandering. The subject hold a balance between the landscape and the abstract vision of a particular location. The names of works, in fact, are not random numbers, they have a geographical latitude and longitude of the place where the work was created."
Glib Franko’s work is dominated by his use of colour. Somewhat reminiscent of impressionist style - a style known for capturing the emotional essence of a place or thing, these paintings capture an experience. The work exudes a sense of understanding, of having reached out for that essence of something to bring out in the work.. We can feel the warmth of the sun on Franko’s painted cloud; the depth of the blue sky is tangible. The Roses are like a walk through a garden as the sun starts to set, the fresh clean air and aromatic fragrance of flowers, lifting through the late afternoon air. The harmonic colour palette of lilacs, soft greens and blushing pinks re-creates a moment in time, his work is encapsulating.
