Colin Rose

Colin Rose

Colin Rose has worked as a sculptor for over thirty years. He has exhibited throughout the UK and Europe and has undertaken many public sculpture commissions.

He has undertaken public sculpture commissions for a very wide range of clients in various mediums. Colin usually works by taking a brief from the client and allowing the brief and the site to lead the design. Over the years he has worked in a variety of mediums from mirror polished stainless steel to stone. More unusually he has worked with Rope, Brick and even Coal Dust depending on the requirement of the brief.

While developing his practice Colin taught fine art and was head of Sculpture at Sunderland University from 2000 till 2006.

In addition to making sculpture, Colin Rose has a strong passion for drawing and the immediacy the process offers. The understanding gained through drawing is an important tool in the development of his designs and his working practice.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
