Glendon’s logo was produced by Robert W. Firestone. It is the center picture of three that makes up “City in Movement.” A reviewer commented: “One senses the swirling chaos beneath man’s attempt to superimpose his own order over nature. With the addition of rainbow hues, the picture becomes a dance of light and dark as the colors whirl and flow through each section of the triptych.” This picture has been exhibited at museums in Venice, Italy and Granada, Spain. The original was purchased by a collector from the U.K.

Artist’s Statement

Faced with the existential reality of aloneness, sickness, aging and one’s eventual death, man can choose to close off emotionally, desensitize himself and depersonalize, or choose to give value and meaning to life. As a clinical psychologist, author and psychotherapist, I have devoted myself to helping people face their personal demons, know themselves and triumph over their psychological pain and suffering. As an artist, I have attempted to live a creative life, searching for and striving for meaning and beauty. Working with the computer as a creative instrument, I have attempted to invent something feelingful, sensitive and beautiful out of an unfeeling machine.

The computer like all of man’s technological achievements has been used for both good and evil machinations. Life and creativity are the antithesis of cynicism and despair. Intimidated by the issue of death and dying, we often turn our backs on life and feeling but instead we could choose to embrace life. We are all fragile and helpless, and therefore brothers. Ideally that would imply empathy, tolerance and generosity towards our fellows.I live and share life closely with a multitude of other people and try to exemplify a sense of love, enlightenment and joy in being and becoming.

My art and my insights into life are a very personal offering to others, a simple sharing of my feelings and perceptions. In my artistic productions, I utilize a variety of images, impressions and approaches to address the fullness and complexity of my experience. In all of my work, I try to blend color and composition into an enjoyable visual experience.
