Proposed Monument for Continuing Sustainability #010 is one of a series of works that attempt to celebrate the humble bicycle as a symbol of sustainability and responsible carbon footprint. The bicycle has a long history of successful human ingenuity and without doubt continues to symbolise human powered energy.

Glen Clarke's practice is centred on the fundamentals of sculpture; the artist strikes a balance between forms that are created and ones that are cut out. His focus is the concept of the void, and has been an integral inspiration for over a decade, akin to a long irresolvable obsession.
Glen completed a Master of Fine Art at Tasmanian School of Art, University of Tasmania in 1990 following a Diploma of Art and Design at School of Visual Arts, Gippsland Institute of Advanced Education, Monash University.
Glen's work has been exhibited since the mid-1970s. His recent solo exhibitions include Cloak, Despard Gallery Hobart, WET Molecular Landscapes & Fictional Cosmologies, Albury Library Museum, Atelier 8206 Cité International des Arts, Paris. His work was also exhibited widely in numerous group exhibitions, including Personal Structures – Crossing Borders European Cultural Centre, Global Art Affairs Foundation, 56th Venice Biennale; Boy Bomb Amazon Billboards, Central Station, New York; SPLASH Gaffer LTD at Studio Rouge, Hong Kong. Glen's work is held in public and private collections nationally and internationally.
