About The Artwork

Through the gate explores the notion of a space and of elements beyond, and enhances the visual idea of a contained space reaching into the distance and into an opening, where the familiar and the unfamiliar may be found in juxtaposition, as though on a walk through a field. This piece is made of objects and materials that have a previous history, comprising, wood, iron, rope, sacking cloth and cork.

Born 1956 in West Sussex, and educated at (Farnham School of Art) West Surrey College of Art & Design/University of the Creative Arts, B.A. (Hons) F.A. Longstanding career as Head of Art at two leading academic independent schools, and previously Senior Examiner with the Pearson / Edexcel examinations board. Now practising full-time. Exhibited at the Northern Young Contemporaries, Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. Two major grant awards received from Southern Arts. Assisted David Nash with Ash Dome. Commissioned by BBRK limited for a site-specific sculpture. Work conserved and exhibited in many private collections in UK, Europe, Canada & USA. Award granted in 3-Dimensional / Sculpture Category, and Special Recognition Category, October 2016, International Open Art Exhibition, Light Space & Time Online Gallery. Commissioned relief / box-painting for "Help for Heroes Charity" auctioned at Hotel Metropol, Brighton, East Sussex, October 2016. Glynn’s painting and sculpture explore the narrative of everyday events and issues, historical journeys, the paradox of objects, and the abstract qualities of both landscape and the built environment. Direct responses to landscape are significant recurring themes. Glynn works with a multitude of found objects, materials and techniques within the scope of painting and sculpture, in order to harness the mystery and visual excitement created by juxtaposition, visual memory and spatial configurations - (the surrealist and dada placement of objects and images). Themes and visual ideas often explore incongruity, archaeological qualities, visual ambiguity, pictorial and real space, political irony, symbol and humour, resulting in a wide range of outcomes made from expressively applied paint, collage, assemblage, wood and objets trouvés that yield a profusion of colour, texture, form and spatial complexities. Glynn’s paintings and sculptures collectively represent a wide outlook upon contemporary issues and the human condition, exposing the placement of familiar everyday fragments revealed within spatial compositions that explore the fast-moving glimpses of the world that are often overlooked and forgotten. Glynn’s multi-surface paintings often explore this concern, while sculptural objects and assemblages explore the psychological force of dreams and memory - the conscious vis-à-vis unconscious as well as feeling and thought.
