With these latest sculptures from his ongoing Everyone series, Rodney Glick presents us with a strange and intriguing cultural mix. The works are loosely based on Indian Hindu paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Glick has staged certain scenarios depicted in these paintings using Australian models, and these scenarios have then been photographed and digitally altered. The resulting manipulated images are exhibited as framed digital prints in their own right. These composite images also serve as source material for the Balinese woodcarvers and painters who have created these sculptures, with Glick providing direction and making the artistic decisions.

These works from the Everyone series, seduce us through the fineness of their form and the skill of their making, they intrigue us because of the mix of ancient and modern, religious and secular, Eastern and Western and finally invite us to confront deep and basic states of mind that we all experience but that we might prefer to leave concealed. And we might find some comfort in knowing that the states of mind we share with the rest of humanity we also share with the gods.
