Introduction

When art unlocks the door of peace, love and kindness, it will stand the test of time. Whenever and wherever seeds of peace are sown, goodness and harmony will follow.

    Closeness to nature is fundamental, 
    Nothing can be forced, with time everything evolves.

    Creating Art harmonizers the heart and mind.
    With the focus on love and kindness all aspects of life can be transformed.

  • Fragments

    Artworks on the theme of shared understanding and connection.

  • Between the Lines

    This project is designed to go beneath the surface appearance and beyond the superficial statements made about our community.

     Glyn has put together a thought-provoking series of sketches and paintings of churches in the Vale. The concept is spiritual and historical rather than simply religious. Although they are many centuries old many of the churches have been built on the site of even earlier places of worship. These locations have been sites of devotion and spiritual peace for centuries reminding us of our history and ancestors and forcing us to reflect on our transient existence in the landscape.

     

    Some of the sketches have an ethereal other-worldly glow and if we squint our eyes we can make out the forms of faces and animals in the background. Glyn told me that he experienced strange feelings whilst sitting near the churches and this comes across in the beautiful renditions. However, whilst spiritual there is nothing sinister in this work, rather a reminder that we are all tied to the space and our ancestors through the landscape.

    Between the Lines

    Between the Lines focuses on the contribution individuals make to achieve the community they wish to live in. It offers an insight into what motivates people who actively contribute to the well being of their community and how their actions help and inspire others. It shines a light on who these people are and what they value.

    Through the combined mediums of pencil drawings, black and white film photographs and written reflections a unique record of community life in Wales and the U.K. is being documented.

    Between the Lines is clearly revealing that we are all interconnected; bonded by our community, our contribution and our shared humanity.

  • Joy in the Presence. A Path in Peace

    Joy in the Presence. A Path in Peace

    This ongoing project began on 1.1.15. One artwork has been made every day since that date. There are now over 1500.

    The piece explores the alchemy of time its multi dimension character and the precious nature of the 'moment'.

    Although the viewer and artist ‘lived through’ the same time frame from January 2015 to the present, they are now able to view history as a series of parallel days, jumping from one day to the next in any order they prefer as if they were time travelling! It also explores the idea of ‘active space’- the time one ‘sleeps’ and carries out other activities between the creation of the component images of the artwork.

    The artworks are actually 'moment markers'.

    It is an attempt to offer a definition of this ‘active space’ through the combination of imagery shown and consequently reveal what cannot be seen by the eye alone.

Life is a bridge, walk across but build nothing on it.
