From her earliest years at art school, Glynis Owen's sculpture reflects a fascination with materials and the exploration of their particularities and qualities to best express her tactile, abstracted imagery.

This perspective changed significantly after leaving Goldsmith's College, to become assistant to the sculptor, Lynn Chadwick. In learning to construct his angular, welded sculptures for international exhibitions, her sculpture reflected a new focus in line, form and spatial relationship.

Consolidating this experience, Glynis Owen established her studio, first in Hampshire and later in Hampstead, London. Commissions followed for schools, colleges and civic situations where her responsive approach and attention to detail were reflected in successfully meeting the site-specific requirements of the project.

A recent major project, working in close collaboration with the commissioning architects, was to create a memorable, site-specific three-panel aluminium relief, evolved from landscape images.

This collaboration has inspired a new series of work that extends her interest in imagery of the earth’s surfaces and draws more directly on geological elements. Working with both sculpture and printmaking techniques, she recombines these elements in an exploration, of line, contour, pattern, texture and reflective areas.
