Kate Glasheen, Dead King 14 [5th Century Mandé King], 2018, ink on archival paper, 20" x 16”

Documenting history through line, Glasheen's latest expertly-wrought ink on paper drawings express historical realities and their all-too-relevant association to our present-day political climate. 


Delicately rendered in exquisite detail, Glasheen's new series represents a departure from the artist's previous more conceptually abstracted works. Employing an historically literate approach, Glasheen critically depicts the opulence and excesses of the past. For Glasheen, there is a narrative through line connecting the rulers of the past with the contemporary leaders of today. 


I would love for you to attend the opening reception of Dead Kings and hope that you will consider this exhibition for a calendar listing!
