From the early 1990s my work has dealt with my own symbolic order, colloquialisms, the words of my father, the stigma of a Northern upbringing and a persistent habit of perceiving situations in an overly romantic fashion. There have been developments and issues that have subconsciously infiltrated my practice and train of thought that have now become fundamental facets within my work. These include colonialism, dictatorship, the plight of those who are seeking asylum and a recollection of a place that I once called home.

“Glyn Davies-Marshall is one of the great undiscovered voices of British performance art. An artist who combines a unique understanding of process combined with the manipulation of objects and materials to create strange and secretive juxtapositions of reality. His work resonates with humour and gut wrenching pathos.” – Andre Stitt
