Land of the Glacier

Visions West Gallery :: Land of the Glacier

DENVER | 05.12.2020 - 06.15.2020 |

Artists: Sarah Winkler

Sarah Winkler is a Colorado based landscape painter. Winkler’s exhibition, Land of the Glacier, explores and translates glacial formations of mountain, ice, and snow. Inspired by a trip to the arresting landscapes of Iceland to witness the Northern Lights, Winkler brought back to her Colorado studio visions of snow-capped fjords under dark winter skies, icebergs calving into the sea, and frozen waterfalls. Research on the geology and nature of glaciers and ice calving has been translated into a body of work that includes large scale landscape paintings, a wall installation of fragmented icebergs, and abstract and conceptual landscape works. Winkler uses overarching metaphors of ‘Mother Earth’ to demonstrate the cycles of nature reflecting our own emotional states of bonding and releasing the things we know and love into the abyss of unknowable destinies. Winkler poetically reveals in her latest body of work how the frozen landscape returns to the sea.

Artists: June Glasson

June Glasson is a native New Yorker who became fascinated by the idea and cultural interpretations of the Western “Mountain Man” after transplanting to Wyoming. Her first series of Mountain Drag was created in Wyoming on paper with white backgrounds and presents women dressed in trapper gear turning traditional Western gender roles on their heads. Her newest series, Mountain Drag II, finds Glasson’s work being created back in her New York studio and her paintings continuing to explore the ideas of the “Mountain Men” of the West now on panels with oil paint and intense backgrounds of brightly saturated colors.
