Glen Onwin RSA is a distinguished Scottish artist working with ideas involving the landscape, geology, and the elemental make-up of the planet.


Glen Onwin RSA: ‘From formlessness to a study of a salt marsh near Dunbar to explorations of the basic substance of salt and its meaning both physical and psychological; the increasing changes to our planet’s subtle ecology brought about through human activity; from earth, air, fire and water, from Hydrogen to element 118 Ununoctium; in my creative practice I am interested in exploring the means by which we have attempted and still attempt to understand and derive meaning from the physical world we inhabit and its relationship to the cosmos.’
