Glen Hayward holds a Doctorate of Fine Arts from Auckland University and is an arts tutor at the Rawene Campus of North Tech College. He has exhibited in major galleries in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, and in numerous other venues around the country. He has been awarded other residencies in New Zealand and abroad.
His approach to art is to treat it as a “conversation” with the public. In the current project he “acknowledges the place of the viewer, so that they are rewarded whether up close and looking from underneath, or from a mid-distance or potentially viewed from above via, say, Google maps.”
