Glenn Badham — Artist
A driven painter, for a quarter of a century, I have built relationships with Galleries, Dealers, and Arts Consultants to showcase and establish my art.
I look for rhythm and repetition in the world around us. Inspired by Fractal Geometry, I look for cycles and synthesis in the rock formations of a landscape or the patterns of a dancer, I make ink sketches that later evolve into oil paintings, celebrating the magnetism of light, colour and movement. I love the way a painting can freeze a moment, whilst at the same time allow space for my reaction and emotion to be thrust upon it.
Past projects include the Palace of Westminster, London Palladium, Sadlers Wells Theatre and Ronnie Scotts Jazz club and I am currently donating a percentage of income generated from print sales to support the National Trusts`, Neptune Coastal Campaign.
