June Glasson was born in Oyster Bay, NY in 1979. She studied at Cornell University and The Slade in London. She has since lived in the American Midwest, South Africa, North Eastern England and Brooklyn. Glasson’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in the United States and abroad and she has many works in private collections. She has work on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London and “The Foulest of Shapes” can be viewed at Nature Morte Gallery in Berlin. She divides her time between Brooklyn and Berlin.

“The Foulest of Shapes” is a series of ink paintings inspired by The Sins of New York, an anthology of mid-nineteenth-century articles and images from The Police Gazette–a sensationalist weekly that claimed to report on the vices, crimes, and “sins” of urban living. See the article on this series here.
