LITERATURE
Gerald Gladstone: Event Horizon, Art Gallery of Ontario, https://ago.ca/exhibitions/gerald-gladstone-event-horizon, accessed June 5, 2019


Gerald Gladstone’s artworks were inspired by physics, and galactic phenomena such as black holes. When creating his works, he stated that “I feel as though I reach up and bring down a chunk of space for people to examine.” His dynamic sculptures and paintings showcase his keen interest in abstract astronomical forms. In Universal Polarity, soft blue centrifugal forces expand beyond the canvas, demonstrating Gladstone’s fascination with the expansiveness of time, space and creative expression. A retrospective of his works, titled Gerald Gladstone: Event Horizon, was held at the Art Gallery of Ontario from November 8, 2003 to February 15, 2004.
