Description
Originally sold by Catherine Viviano Gallery, 42 East 57th St., New York 22, NY. Biography from Butler Institute of American Art: Joseph Glasco was born in Paul's Valley, Oklahoma and grew up in Texas. In 1949, after his first one-person exhibition in New York, Glasco became the youngest artist represented at that time in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Glasco's rythmical, all-over abstract compositions have often been linked with those of American artist Jackson Pollock. During the 1950s, Glasco became friends with Pollock; the two seemed to share an affinity for the element of chance in their work. In the late 1970s, Glasco first created his collaged canvases such as "Untitled #7" . They were made from irregular scraps of canvas painted and glued unevenly onto an underlying abstract painting. According to Glasco, " . . . there is a need in me to do sculpture and it somehow comes out when I paint and use material on top of material, . . . which is what sculpture is about."
