Glen’s current interests emphasise painting as an object or assemblage of material events that processes an embodied space of material thought. As such, the concrete or material developments of a surface, as opposed to the pictorial or illusory depictions upon it, are the locus of his research. The ground, normally hidden, therefore occupies painterly space, instead of simply supporting it.
On these subjects, Glen has curated an exhibition called Materialised, and published a catalogue More Than a Picture: The Painting as Object. Glen has exhibited in London and continues to show in New Zealand. He is included in such public collections as the Wallace Arts Trust, and has an ongoing interest in writing alongside his making. He has been published in the Psychodynamic Practicejournal, Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, along with the on-line critical art-review site EyeContact.
Glen lectures and supervises on the Fine Arts Undergraduate and Masters programmes, within both the studio and contextual schedules. Glen has been at Whitecliffe since 2011
