Glynne James

All Artists Gallery

Glynne was born and raised in Hertfordshire where he started painting and exhibiting his work. He now lives and works in Lincolnshire and this fascinating landscape has become his focus.
The temporal approach is the essence of Glynne’s work and results in highly stylised canvases, each painting approaches the landscape in terms of its changes, not as individual paintings but upon the same canvas, strips of fenland character displayed as a coherent whole. On occasions the adjacent strips are subtly differentiated, as if moving from one minute’s observation to the next, on others, the changes are sudden and startling; a field of wheat becomes a sea of plastic, a distant shape becomes a blazingly lit power station. Landscape which may appear featureless to the casual observer is presented with its components highlighted.
