Michael McGlennon’s art feels like something you might discover posthumously in your friend’s garage as you dig through a trunk packed with rotting encyclopedias, star maps, a disassembled mechanical model of our solar system, and foraging guides for mushrooms in Canada. Wondering at this strangely assembled collection you begin sorting through all of his sketchbooks, stacks of poetry, confessionals, short stories and cassette recordings, finding a carefully documented expanse of folklore. You begin to look through and listen to these creations all at once, curiously poking your head through windows into another world. A kaleidoscope of things reflected: beautiful, tragic, and sickly hilarious, like a dream you can't forget - awake to the porous membrane between our experiential universe and its limitless parallels.
