June Glasson
Untitled, Western Female Figure, Portrait in Bright Pink, Violet, Lilac Blue

2016

$1,100

About

In this pink and violet painting on paper mounted on mat board, a woman dressed in traditional western dress holds her arms outstretched. Her face and clothing are painted with quink (a fast-drying archival ink) and solvent, in bright bursts of hot pink and lilac blue. Signed on verso. The “American West” is the primary focus and artistic catalyst for June Glasson. In her multidisciplinary practice of drawing, painting, and installation art, Glasson explores and questions iconic “western” imagery. Depicting women juxtaposed with buffalo, beaver pelts or pistols, for example, sets up a visual investigation into dominant narratives about the region and narratives that often ignore its complicated and violent history. Glasson’s figurative work depicts semi-realistic representations of the women in her life, a personalized way of expressing concern for the treatment of the female figure in art and popular culture while challenging historic and contemporary notions of gender roles. From the artist’s statement: “Simultaneously, the work reflects my personal relationship with the landscape, the people, and culture of Wyoming - a place that is both exotic and home to me.” After living in Wyoming for seven years, the artist recently moved back to New York. Her paintings have been exhibited in London, Berlin and in museums and galleries throughout the United States. Glasson’s work has been published in New American Paintings, The Paris Review, The Wall Street Journal, Guernica, Domino, Myself, Asymptote, People and Diner Journal, to name a few.
