Glenn works predominantly in stone and mixed media using traditional carving techniques to create forms that at first sight appear abstract but are often based on actual encounters in the Arctic. He has a first class degree in sculpture and his work has been exhibited in public areas and at the Royal Academy. A qualified teacher, he spent a number of years teaching pottery. Glenn has exhibited both privately and publicly, including recent inclusion in Sculpture Cymru’s ‘Barcode Project’ at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales.
During the last twenty years I have visited the Arctic over twenty times. I have lived and hunted with the Inuit people both in Greenland and in Arctic Canada. The time spent there has had a profound effect on me and how I view our World and society. The Arctic is under threat along with its people and culture; the land is literally melting away.
I am interested in the beauty and fragility of nature and the environment and the very tenuous relationship that mankind has with his surroundings. Time and our relationship with it also tend to drive and lead my work.
