Nieuwsbrief
Glenn Kallasingh was born in Suriname (1959) but grew up in the Netherlands where he studied at academies in Amsterdam and The Hague.  From a young age he was exposed to art, literature and music, expressions which in his perception are extensions of each other.
He performs songs out of the Dhrupad tradition, which is part of Indian classical music.
“The theme color for my paintings develops in the morning when doing my vocal exercises. My concentration centers on one tone during those exercises.  Tone, sound en timbre are related to each other.  They are all waves and vibrations.”
Humans and animals are metaphors in his work, hybrid figures supplementing each other, both figurative as well as abstract in form.
Water is a wave movement for Glenn Kallasingh, which occurs as an orange-red border of the composition in ‘El espiritu bailando en el cuerpo’.
Within this border, Ganesh, the god of happiness is being carried by a woman:  mother earth connected with the spirit.  The shell which has been placed in a circle is arising from the water and has the form of a spiral. Together they picture eternity.
From the use of text in the composition the involvement of Glenn Kallasingh with music is evident: the text is a traditional hymn of praise for divinity.
Text translated from  "30 visions on water'
