Fenland Heatwave by Glynne James
Working with oil paint on canvas of all different shapes and sizes, Glynne James is inspired by the Lincolnshire fenland that he has come to call home. His unique style is comprised of multiple squares and rectangles, each acting as a ‘window’ to the scene, as viewed throughout time. In this regards, Glynne’s work might document the arrival of flowers in Spring, the light of a mid-summer sky, and the haze of an autumnal sunrise, all in one cohesive painting.
Whether muted and subtle, or brazen and bold, Glynne’s use of colour always creates a rich, familiar atmosphere that perfectly captures the ever changing essence of the Great British Countryside. In this regard, it is fitting that Glynne’s work does not shy away from the man-made. Power stations, wind turbines and pylons are often featured adorning the landscape in such a way, that industrialisation appears almost unremarkable. This harmonious proximity between rural and industrial, invites the viewer to consider the evolution of the natural world, as humankind continues to push it’s boundaries.
