Silks Building Studio (37-24 24th Street) - Studio# 404
Cora Jane Glasser is a third generation New Yorker, born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens, and residing in Manhattan. She received her education in NYC public schools, Queens College, and The Art Students League. Glasser's family history is deeply entrenched in the history of the City. Her father's family worked in a building trade, and her mother's in the garment and entertainment industries. Craft and structure dominated her upbringing. Her art is a reflection of those influences. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows nationally and internationally, and is held in private, corporate and municipal collections. She works in her studio in Long Island City, overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
I create abstractions of urban architectural, structural and ubiquitous elements to document the passage of time, and the way recasting - or preserving - the constructed city affects our relationship to the built and natural environment.
