Paradigm Gallery is pleased to present Dead Kings, an exhibition of new works by the Philadelphia-based artist Kate Glasheen. The exhibition, marking Glasheen's first solo presentation with the gallery, will open on January 25, and remain on view through March 16, 2019. There will be an opening reception at the gallery on January 25, from 5:30 to 10pm. 
Documenting history through line, Glasheen's latest expertly-wrought ink on paper drawings express historical realities and their all-too-relevant association to our present-day political climate. 
Delicately rendered in exquisite detail, Glasheen's new series represents a departure from the artist's previous more conceptually abstracted works. Employing an historically literate approach, Glasheen critically depicts the opulence and excesses of the past. For Glasheen, there is a narrative through line connecting the rulers of the past with the contemporary leaders of today.

Artist ( Description ): 

Kate Glasheen graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. Kate has since been a creator, artist, and contributor for several critically acclaimed books, participated in exhibitions across the country, and worked on several of the biggest properties in entertainment. Her artistic interests find communion in fine and sequential art under the notion that there's something hilarious about something that's not funny at all. 
Kate has exhibited her work in spaces such as LA’s Gallery 1988, Philadelphia’s Paradigm Gallery, and Brooklyn’s Gristle Gallery. Published works include Top Shelf’s upcoming A Radical Shift of Gravity (with collaborator Nick Tapalansky), contributions to the Adventure Time series (BOOM! Studios), Hybrid Bastards! (Archaia Entertainment), The Sakai Project (Dark Horse Comics), several entries in to the Graphic Canon series (Seven Stories Press), Resist! (Françoise Mouly, Nadja Speigleman, and Desert Island), as well as her own passion project, the Kickstarter funded Bandage: A Diary of Sorts. An ongoing web comic entitled Varsity Noir launches spring 2019 through Line Webtoon. 
Commercial clients include Paramount Pictures, Cartoon Network, AMC, Topps, Inc., and many others with work spanning such properties as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and The Walking Dead.
