Through observation of urban architectural and structural elements, Core Jane Glasser documents the passage of time via the effects of light – both sunlight and artificial, and our relationship with built and natural environments. Exploring tensions between old and new, solid and void, presence and absence, the artist composes an abstract diary of shifting color and form, creating an evocative and magnetic sense of time and place. Glasser’s paintings, drawings, and installations have been exhibited in group and solo shows nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at the Gallery at F.I.T, Pelham Art Center, Ely Center for Contemporary Art, Morris Museum, Roger Smith Hotel, Gallery 61 at the New York Institute of Technology, LABspace in Hillsdale, NY, and the Katonah Museum of Art. Her work is represented in numerous private, corporate, and municipal collections, including at the Landmarks Preservation Commission, Library, NYC; and a commission for Transitional Services of New York of a permanent installation in one of their construction projects. The artist lives and works in New York City.
By observing urban architectural and structural elements, I document the passage of time, and the way recasting – or preserving – the constructed city affects our relationship with the built and natural environment. I explore tensions between old and new, solid and void, and presence and absence. Abstract layering of light, color and form evoke gut recognition, and an ambiguous sense of time and place.
