Artist Statement

Aerials Series

 The Aerials Series resides in the realm of cultural fiction. Surface and subsurface migrations, penetrations and traversings describe the flow of beings from both past and future. Evidences of conflict, avoidance, and isolation, as well as commonalities of purpose and direction are visible.

 The discovery of these movements and events encompasses archeological, geological, spectrographic, theoretical and other more advanced detective methodologies. Early written language cues sometimes offer insights as to the configurations of panoramic migratory flow and detailed habitation sites alike.

 Ongoing formal interests are also reflected in the Aerials Series: differing levels of abstraction as means to convey non-literal information; the transition points where line enlarges to become form, and form configures to become object; that object/form’s visual relationship to it’s ground; the development of a ground or spatial environment or atmosphere that satisfies a personal appetite for density and layered complexity, as well as narrative consistency.

 

 

 

Artist Bio / CV

Robert Glasgow is a Professor of Art at the University of Iowa, where he teaches lithography, monotype, monoprint in all media, and occasionally, paperworks, intaglio and relief. He received his MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1969 and a BFA from Wittenberg University in 1967. His work has been shown in over 150 individual and group exhibitions and is included in 50 public and corporate collections. Glasgow’s interests in print, drawing and painting media encompass traditional, photomechanical and digital applications and result in both multiple and unique works, with a special focus on a grey area of activity in between - serial monoprinting. His studio practice draws upon the inherent capability of the matrix to produce exactly repeatable, variant, cognate and uniquely inked impressions, as well as rubbings and “transferred drawings”.
