Judy Glantzman describes her work as “a flashlight on the dark underbelly that exists under the surface of polite society.” Influenced by Goya’s Disasters of War, she explores her idea of war and its social impact today by using a unique visual vocabulary consisting of planes, skulls, and guns. In this work, Glantzman’s adroit hand renders two propeller planes from her earliest memory of war. The two planes are parked on the shoulder of a runway, blending into the industrial structure behind them and quietly sitting with potential for destruction. Glantzman’s work can be seen in numerous public collections, including Whitney Museum, New York; Phoenix Art Museum; The Progressive Collection, Cleveland; and Tampa Museum of Art. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants, most notably the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, the New York Foundation for the Arts Grant, and the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant. Glantzman lives and works in New York.
