Miles Glynn (b. 1980) is an American mixed media artist who lives & works in Bozeman, Montana. He grew up the son of a U.S. Army photo-journalist & this experience taught him to see life in frames & compositions. It also sparked an affinity for going to great lengths to create intriguing imagery that tells compelling stories.
The common thread throughout Glynn’s work is that of presenting items & images from our past with renewed intrigue and relevance. As a self-taught artist, his work has evolved into something that is part contemporary imagery & part time capsule. Glynn’s mixed media works are at once familiar yet curious, striking yet soothing.
Glynn’s work has featured in solo exhibitions in the towns Big Sky and Whitefish, Montana as well as Jackson Hole, Wyoming and San Antonio, Texas. His work is part of private collections throughout the United States as well as the U.K. and New Zealand.
I create mixed media artwork which presents a fresh perspective of items & images of intrigue from our past. I enjoy the challenge of presenting these once prolific but now largely forgotten items & images - wallpaper, pulp fiction magazines, home sewing patterns, & classic photographs - and injecting them into our present conversations and contemporary spaces. The resulting imagery is what I present in the hope that others will find familiarity, curiosity, & resonance in my work.
