One to Watch

Glenn Kennedy

One of four finalists in the 2013 New Sensations Prize (his paintings sold out at the week-long exhibition), Glenn Kennedy is a child of the supposed “peace” of Northern Ireland, and his paintings are deeply informed by this period and the resurgence of conflict in the country where he grew up. Aesthetically, he is interested in disorder which is manifest in his paintings in which images from different contexts are collaged together to create new alternative narratives.

Watch Glenn talk about his work and what inspires him in this New Sensations video.
