About David Glynn

BIO/ Statement

"I am an American artist and I was educated at Rhode Island School of Design, San Francisco Art Institute and Massachusetts College of Art. My paintings, prints and digital works are in various permanent collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum (London, UK) in addition to many private collections such as Janet and Gil Friesen." 

In the 1990s, Glynn exhibited digital works in Los Angeles as part of a pioneering group of artists known as “The Digilantes”, which included artists Michael Wright, Michael Masucci, Victor Acevedo, and others. Since then, Glynn’s works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in cultural centers and galleries throughout the United States and abroad, including Torrance Art Museum (Torrance, CA); The Computer Museum (Boston, MA); University Art Gallery of New Mexico State University (Las Cruces, NM); Retretti Art Centre (Punkaharju, Finland); Spectra Digital Arts Gallery (New York, NY); Vibrant Gallery (New York, NY); Pharmaka Gallery (Los Angeles, CA); Revisited Gallery (Los Angeles, CA); Digitalogue Gallery at Bergamot Station (Santa Monica, CA) and South LaBrea Gallery (Inglewood, CA). Additionally, Glynn has been featured in many books and publications including The New Yorker and The New York Times, and was "Pick of the Week" in L.A. Weekly for his mural size print "4096: Trust Time".

Glynn has taught Digital Art in the Digital Media Department at Otis College of Art and Design and has given lectures on Computer Art at the University of Southern California. He is the recipient of the "Excellence Award in Art Education" for teaching Advanced Painting at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, and continues to teach Portfolio Preparation and Painting to local students. Glynn lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

Statement

Choice Cycle :

 I created over a hundred paintings for “Choice Cycle,” my monumental mural designed specifically for my Virtual Reality experience.

Since it is in a virtual room without a roof, you can fly up to a virtual 46’ foot+ height and look down over the work from the very top. That’s a foot taller than the Last Judgement fresco painted in the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo- 

Each section was painted in my studio, then scanned into the computer, depicting a diverse cross-section of humanity.

I assembled the composition with the computer to make this virtual 40’ by 46’ foot quilt-like composition. Using the headset and hand gear, you can levitate (or “fly”) and hover at any level to study the details within arms reach of the work.

You “fly” by raising your arms to maneuver up and down and, left and right, you can effectively get at “touching” reach to the composition to see it exactly as each section was painted revealing the layers and surface textures. 

I created each , 40” by 54” inch section, with paint on canvas and board, working by layering over previous sections, painting a gestural abstract painting, overlaid with bicycles over that, and then with babies over the bicycle layers and repeated. Most of the paintings, over 90 of the individual works, only exist now exist in this Virtual Art Work setting. But, I’ve saved 10 of the best original paintings which could be displayed in a gallery setting alongside the interactive virtual reality headware and hand gear used to view and experience the work.

The title “Choice Cycle” is in reference to our lives of free will and is the first of a suite of murals produced to be specifically incorporated into my virtual environments.

A dropbox link of the VR experience file is available in HTC VIVE format for preview and purchase as well as an intro video on my youtube channel and at www.davidglynn.com/text
