Narangkar Glover

Narangkar Glover was born in Española, New Mexico to members of the high demand group 3HO Sikh Dharma. Because of this group, she and her siblings spent their entire childhood away from their parents at a boarding school called Guru Nanak Fifth Centenary School located in Uttarakhand, India. She left the group at age nineteen and began studying art. Glover’s work revolves around her formative years in this group ­– the chaos, the hostility, and the trauma – which have driven her to be interested in what it is about early life experiences that can fundamentally influence who we are, how we navigate our worlds, and why we are driven to create work from it. Glover received a Bachelor in Fine Arts from The California College of Arts and Crafts in 1999, and a Masters in Fine Arts from The University of California at Berkeley in 2011. She has exhibited her work in New York, Michigan, Los Angeles and all over the San Francisco Bay Area. She’s the recipient of the prestigious Joan Mitchell MFA Award in Painting and Sculpture, the Headlands Center for the Arts Graduate Fellowship, and The Phelan-Murphy-Cadogan prize. She has been published in New American Paintings 93 (MFA Annual) and 91 (Pacific Coast Edition), and is currently represented by Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco. Glover lives and works in Oakland, California.
