About The Artist

Born in 1956 in West Sussex and educated at West Surrey College of Art & Design / University of the Creative Arts, (B.A. (Hons) F.A.), I enjoyed an established career as Head of Art at two leading academic independent schools and was formerly Senior Examiner / Moderator with the Edexcel Examinations Board - (Pearson Qualifications).

I have a long and varied fascination with ‘Wood’. My themes 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, assemblage, wood and objets trouvés that yield a plethora of colour, texture, form and spatial complexities.

Review by Dr James Fox : British Art Historian & Broadcaster

Dr James Fox, British Art Historian and Broadcaster has written my critique, available in full on my website.

“Tom Glynn is one of the most inventive British artists working today. Moving effortlessly between artforms, materials and techniques, he makes beautiful, playful and sophisticated images, infused with a deeply-felt love of the world around him”.

Exhibitions

Practising full-time since 2008, I exhibited at the Northern Young Contemporaries, Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. Two major grant awards were received from Southern Arts.

I assisted David Nash with Ash Dome, Blaenau Ffestiniog and was commissioned by BBRK limited, (Shepperton Studios), for a site-specific sculpture.

My art is conserved and exhibited in many private collections in the UK, Europe, America and Canada.

I was awarded 3-Dimensional / Sculpture Category and Special Recognition Category in October 2016 - Global International Open Art Exhibition, Light Space & Time Online Gallery - Featured art collection at saatchiart.com

My 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. Aspects of the Sussex landscape are significant recurring themes.

I work with a multitude of found objects, materials and techniques within the scope of both 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). Louise Nevelson, Joseph Cornell, Howard Hodgkin, Ivon Hitchens and William Turnbull, whom I met at his Camden Square house and studio in the 1970’s, have been especially influential. I have also been significantly influenced by David Nash, whom I also met, at his Blaenau Ffestiniog home and studio and later, assisted him with his ‘Ash Dome’ in 1976.

About The Artist

I am a Russian-born multi-media artist based in East Sussex.

From an early age, I was exposed to art culture and studied fine art in musical school back in my home town in Russia at the age of 8 - 9, before moving to England.

Intuitively, I was always drawn to art and decided to take fine art in school at GSCE, passing with an A* grade to further my learning.  At this moment, I couldn’t find my voice in art and began exploring other mediums such as graphic design, clay making, photography and much more.

That period helped me form my understanding and relationship with art as a whole, creating confidence and voice, helping me use paint as my own language to speak to the inner and outer world.
