The artist's unique style incorporates a process of controlling and manipulating form. Classes in anatomy at New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital imbued his work with the true spirit of the human body. The biomechanics of muscle and bone continue to influence his work, instilling a sense of dynamic motion. He models the structural elements of his pieces after the Renaissance artists Donatello, Michelangelo and Bernini. Studying the work of these masters-in-situ has greatly impacted his stylistic development.
Gary Sussman, instructor Art Student’s League of New York says of Marlowe’s work,
“Glenn Marlowe is a sculptor of grand scale. His close observation of the human form has lead us to enormous presentations of the human condition. Mr. Marlowe provides us with the generosity of his understanding of scale and confronts us with an intimate sense of place in the world of grandiosity.”
