Glyn Davies-Marshall

UK

Glyn Davies-Marshall is a performance and installation artist whose work has been presented throughout the UK as well as in Germany and Russia. He currently works as a Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts and Stafford College.

Of his work, the artist writes: “From the early 1990s my work has dealt with my own symbolic order, colloquialisms, the words of my father, the stigma of a Northern upbringing and a persistent habit of perceiving situations in an overly romantic fashion. There have been developments and issues that have subconsciously infiltrated my practice and train of thought that have now become fundamental facets within my work. These include colonialism, dictatorship, the plight of those who are seeking asylum and a recollection of a place that I once called home.”

Artist Andre Stitt describes him this way: β€œAn artist who combines a unique understanding of process combined with the manipulation of objects and materials to create strange and secretive juxtapositions of reality. His work resonates with humour and gut wrenching pathos.”
