Her work references the urban landscape using an economy of means that lets the paint hold forth. Glasser’s family has been involved for generations the city’s construction and garment trades, as well as the theater community.

“My work reflects the architecture of the city and the history embedded within it. This is expressed in an abstracted way, using natural and manmade light to capture the many moods of the urban experience.”
