Carly Glovinski finds inspiration in everyday objects including lawn chairs, old fabric, floor tiles, and a rusty planter, among others. As a classically trained painter, she incorporates a significant art historical technique into her work, tromp l'oeil, which translates literally to “deceives the eye.” It is a method in which artists employ hyperrealism to create the illusion that a painted detail is a three-dimensional object. For Glovinski, her objects and installations mimic real objects so much that viewers find it necessary to look closely and question if what they are viewing is manufactured, organic, or created by the artist's hand.
