An accomplished local artist who has lived and worked in Luxembourg, Slovakia, London, and Ireland will hold an exhibition of his works at The Playhouse this week.
Andrew Glenn is a painter born 1981 in Derry/Londonderry, N. Ireland. He studied at the Norwich University College of the Arts from 2001 -2004, graduating with a BA (Hon's) in Fine Art Painting. Since then he has lived and worked in Luxembourg, Slovakia, London, and Ireland.
His works are often figure studies, portraits and cityscapes. He has experimented with different theories, technique and ideas, continuously exploring colour, composition and his means of expression. Combining a distinctive yet subtle use of colour with the manipulation and application of oil paint directly with a palette knife he creates a sophisticated visual texture through bold, expressive and gestural mark making.
The exhibition, 'New Paintings', will run from Tuesday March 22- Saturday March 26.
