  • Biography
    Painting  Drawing  Printmaking  Collage  Film

    The central focus of Glenn’s art is the human figure and landscape, painted in a  representational idiom. Drawing from direct observation forms the foundation of all his art practice. This observational discipline is grafted to a strong sense of narrative and concept, encompassing social issues -trafficking, state surveillance, consumer profiling.

    This visual repertory, which spanning a wide range of media can be traced back to a career as a scenic artist [several years with the BBC in London] for film, television and theatre. This work provided opportunities to practice trompe-l’oeil techniques and visual trickery on an industrial scale. He has since employed this experience to investigate various artistic techniques of [mis]representation, producing a visual discord; a  blurring of the line between the genuine and the fraudulent, reality and illusion.

    Glenn now works full-time from his studio in West Wales.

    His work is represented in private collections across six continents.

    Event: CONSIGNMENT

    Dates: Feb. 16, 2015 - March 19, 2015

    Venue: Aberystwyth School of Art Gallery, Aberystwyth: Ceredigion, Wales

    Consignment is an ongoing multi-media project comprising paintings, prints and film. The work developed from an initial theme of escapology into a visual metaphor for the individual as the object of:
    1 political oppression; the suspension of human liberties and the enforced submission of the individual.
    2 human trafficking. The high risk strategies employed in acts of global transmigration, either voluntary or coerced, place people in situations of extreme endurance; conditions into which they are willing to place themselves and/or others, in the vain hope of improving their economic circumstances.
