Land of the Glacier

Visions West Gallery :: Land of the Glacier

DENVER | 04.17.2020 - 05.30.2020 | 6:00 pm

Artists: Sarah Winkler

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 3rd, 6:00 - 8:00 pm Following a mid-Winter trip to the arresting landscape of Iceland to witness the Northern Lights dance above glaciers and volcanos, Winkler brought back to her Colorado studio visions of snow capped fjords under dark winter skies, icebergs calving into the sea, white squalls over geothermal pools and frozen waterfalls. Fierce arctic winds roared across tundras of snow and ice as the artist photographed the Aurora Borealis at midnight. For her solo exhibition, ‘Land of the Glacier’, at Visions West Contemporary in Denver, Winkler explores and translates glacial formations of mountain, ice and snow. Research on the geology and nature of glaciers and ice calving will be translated in a body of work that includes large scale landscape paintings, a wall installation of fragmented icebergs, abstract and conceptual landscape works that reflect her interest in the science and art of nature. Using metaphors of ‘Mother Earth’ to demonstrate the concepts of wholeness and nurtured states in contrast to letting go. The fragmentation process of fullness to dissipation. 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 reveals poetically 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.
