"Live chainsaw carved portraits"
Glenn Richardson is an artist living and working in Shenandoah County, VA. He mostly carves native wood with chainsaws. He regards this practice as a populist art form, not quite folk art but more the sculptural equivalent of garage rock. His work reflects an outsider perspective. This is termed redneck tech for blue state sensibilities.
In 2016 his work was in two group shows, a solo show, 8 festivals including Burning Man. The same year he pioneered live portraits carving with a chainsaw.
