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.
