Miles Glynn captures the quintessence of what was and what is today’s West in a compelling fusion of realism, fantasy and technology.
Felder Gallery invites you to come see Where The West Is Fun at our 2nd Annual Contemporary Western Show. This time, we are showcasing works by Miles Glynn from his Wallflower and pulpWESTERN series. The show will run from November 22, 2019 – January 4, 2020 with an opening reception, featuring a personal appearance by the Montana-based artist, on Friday November 22, from 5-7pm.
The artist captures the quintessence of what was and what is today’s West in a compelling fusion of realism, fantasy and technology. His work is intricate, meticulous, graceful, and often downright startling. As unexpected, say, as an image of a fragile scrap of wallpaper from an historic ghost town adorning the rough, shaggy pelt of a buffalo. Nope, it shouldn’t work, but yep, it does.
Glynn's affinity for traveling long roads, exploration, and going to great lengths to create compelling photographs leads to his success in telling important stories. "I travel to abandoned homesteads, gritty ghost towns, and buildings dripping with history to photograph exquisite wallpapers - these glorious relics of an effort made by people who wished to enjoy a simple bit of beauty inside their dwelling on the harsh and hostile American frontier. But time has had its way with these buildings, and in my own way, I take comfort in helping the grace and grandeur of these relics to live on."
