“I explore city scenes, interiors of restaurants and places we may frequent, or even rural back yard pools, to set a stage for a narrative that explores a quandary. Our lives are full of places and people who come, or who have gone, or whom we may long to know. My paintings give the viewer permission to superimpose and examine their own feelings pertaining to the narrative given in each image. The ubiquitous empty chair implies a presence, or absence, that may trigger memory or hope, the story everyone has but many hold secret. The empty, quiet room gives isolation without loneliness, allowing us the freedom to follow thought. On city streets we are surrounded by humanity and the crush of advertisements and faces yet are totally alone.” —Glenn Ness
