Key Qualities of Vicky Glyn’s work:
- the use of exciting colour schemes;
- influences of Islamic art and fractals;
- they express a spiritual quality. Ideally she would like each piece to contain a door into the next world somehow.
- an interplay of movement and stillness, via the use of pattern.
- she aims for the works to have a presence, and a “wow” factor.
