“All this happened, more or less”
P.P.O.W Gallery, 535 W22nd St., NYC (3rd Fl)
Glaessner combines familiar objects with misunderstood and idiosyncratic portraits, often laden with humor that counterpoint her macabre imagery. An exploration of memory, personal history and ritual, Glaessner’s work questions the way in which we relate to and envision our past. Her most recent paintings depict a highly detailed mythology of post-human existence on earth that features anthropomorphic, gelatinous figures in familiar, yet toxic, landscapes. These organic creatures appear as if born from natural forms, like tree trunks and rock formations, in attempt to reconstruct lost histories through the detritus left behind. - thru Aug 15
New York Academy of Art’s 2013 Fellowship recipient, who gave me my first critique there. Very strange to scroll through my feed and stumble across this. So excited for her!
