Glenn Carney | Outpatients Waiting Area, Nevill Hall Hospital, Brecon Road, Abergavenny NP7 7EG


Glenn is a self-taught landscape painter whose work mainly depicts scenes from west Wales, in the colder seasons. This is a hobby that he began to place greater focus on about 10 years ago. He thought to himself, “what am I waiting for?". 

Glenn likes to show lonely places, or where the human footprint has faded. Glenn is a colourist, using strong tones to represent feeling. "For me, this is just instinctively done, with very little planning. I normally develop a painting as pure abstraction until something asserts itself which I must then bring to the fore." 

Glenn likes to revisit the same motifs again and again, "because it works like a meditation, and I only paint for my own relaxation."

This is the 68th show in a series of exhibitions in and around Nevill Hall Hospital, organised by Gwent Arts in Health. Garth is a local charity that realises the potential of the arts in promoting health and wellbeing.
