ARTWORKS - THE BIG IDEA

Glyn’s Big Idea is that ‘Art has the power to Enlighten’. To be enlightened is to see the truth behind the illusion, or to get beyond the separate ego and know the true self - the divine self. Can art really help achieve such an aim? Who knows, but Glyn is on his own personal journey of enlightenment and would like to share his experience with others. His art is one way in which he can do this.

This leg of the journey involves taking the received style of William-Adolphe Bouguereau as a basis for the spiritual/religious works that Glyn hopes to create in the future. To nail the process Glyn has chosen twelve of Bouguereau’s works to study. On completing the 12 studies Glyn will start to make changes to the received style and develop his own creative style to better express his big idea.
