Glynne James

Originally from Hertfordshire, Glynne moved to Lincolnshire in the 1970s where, much to his own surprise after growing up surrounded by rolling countryside and woodlands, he fell in love with the open spaces, distant horizons and vast skies that are ‘The Fens’

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.

Glynne endeavours to produce highly stylised canvases of the 21st century landscape, whether this be in the growing of new crops, the threat of climate change or the understated march of machinery and challenges the viewer to really see the Fenland landscape and not just look at it.

As well as original pieces we have a selection of prints available to buy in the gallery. Please contact us for more information.
