Carl Rowe

Carl Rowe studied Fine Art at Manchester Polytechnic, graduating with an MA in 1985. He currently lives in Norwich and is a former Associate Professor and Course Leader in Fine Art at Norwich University of the Arts. He is an artist member and studio holder at OUTPOST in Norwich and is also a member of the Printmakers Council. Carl Rowe has an international profile as both an artist and an academic. His work has been exhibited widely in the UK as well as in Germany, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Canada, US, Estonia, Japan, Malaysia and Egypt. In addition to studio production he has also worked on public art including billboards, print portfolios and hospital art. In 2018 Rowe was commissioned by Hospital Rooms to make work for Woodlands Mental Health Unit at Ipswich Hospital and is currently engaged in a new project with Hospital Rooms.

“My art switches back and forth between an engagement with socio-political issues and subconscious renderings.

I can’t escape my concern for the wrongdoing in the world and within my art a surface layer of humour, absurdity and the arcane masks a strong undercurrent of concern for humanity. When I ease off the direct engagement with current affairs, symbols, objects and graphic devices float up from somewhere in my memory and arrange themselves in unlikely compositions.”

Carl Rowe works with both paint, sculpture and print process. The materials that I use are often intrinsically connected with the images they portray such as the work Drool, an installation made with ink containing herbs and spices from the G20 countries and the Serbian paprika used in Deprecated Location, a screen print depicting Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Recent paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints present an obsession with clay pipe fragments, hazard warnings, cylindrical containers and clouds of particulates.

    Patricia Mitchell

    Patricia Mitchell draws inspiration from experiences gained through her extensive travels and conservation work in Africa, Patricia’s love of nature, botany and global culture and tradition clearly resonates through her work as a mixed media artist.

    PAPER: From the magic of a murmuration of starlings; the plight of global deforestation; a myriad of majestic African animals; origami diamonds; sculptured paper fish; origami Japanese slippers to even a colourful selection of bees, dragonflies and beetles – every piece Patricia sculpts from paper comes with a thought provoking narrative.

    MESH: The other genre of her portfolio are her signature abstract elephant sculptures made with aluminium mesh,

    coated with a mix of 24ct gold and Fools Gold. Her golden elephants can either be seen in family herds or alone, marching along on pieces of ancient drift wood, sourced from the Jurassic coasts of New Zealand. “No other wood will do – drift wood has withstood the test of time, yet it still holds its beauty, strength and power, much like our beloved elephants.”

    Behind the awe inspiring intricacy of Patricia Mitchell’s paper and mesh sculptures, there always lies an empowering story which can be either be absorbed, be viewed in passing or can be used as an interesting topic to research and to discuss.

      Rebecca Gouldson

      Rebecca Gouldson creates elegant, bespoke metal and enamel wall pieces for private, corporate and public spaces.

      The beautifully etched, rich metallic surfaces are created using techniques more traditionally used by printmakers. These expressive, reflective surfaces engage the viewer as they transform with the changing light of the day.

      Rebecca draws inspiration from diverse subject matter, including architecture, the rural landscape, and maps. Working closely with her clients, each response to a commission brief involves taking photographs, and making drawings, prints and collages on paper. This imagery is combined, manipulated and then etched in to metal. Layers of processes, including electroplating and chemical patination, are used in innovative sequences, which push the boundaries of metalworking, to create unique objects.

      Having established her studio in 2003, Rebecca Gouldson quickly rose to acclaim at first nationally, receiving awards from the Crafts Council and Crafts Magazine, and then internationally, exhibiting in the USA at prestigious shows such as SOFA Chicago and Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. Back in the UK, her work was sold at London and Edinburgh Art Fairs.

      Since then, she has been working on projects as diverse as superyachts, board rooms, and luxury jewellery and fashion brands in the US, Japan and the Middle East. In 2014, Rebecca extended her artistic practice to include vitreous enamel, which has extended the potential of her commission work in to architectural facades and outdoor sculptures.

        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.

          Zac Greening

          Zac Greening draws his inspiration principally from nature – ‘the ultimate sculptress’. He finds the sculptural forms created by the sun, moon, waves and trees particularly inspiring as symbols of sustainability.

          He works in a wide range of media from discarded plastic bottles to organic matter. Often these materials are fused together to reinforce the aesthetic or narrative that he’s looking to express.

          A narrative is created that highlights the relationship between man and the natural environment.

          Common themes found in his work often abstractly express or make a comment on current issues. Issues such as sustainability, environmental degradation, or consumption. Alternatively they may simply be an expression of the marvel and awe he sees in a sunset or the kinetic and meditative experience found in the rolling of sea waves.

          Zac Greening communicates and reminds the viewer of mankind’s inextricable socio-economic and spiritual link with the natural world

            Mark Beattie MRSS

            Mark Beattie MRSS is a British award winning sculptor who lives and works in London.

            In 2015, Mark won the Midlands Open, The Xerxes Sculpture Prize and was elected a Member of The Royal Society of Sculptors (MRSS). In 2017 Mark was shortlisted for the Open Contemporary Young Artist Award run by the Biscuit Factory Gallery in Newcastle and long-listed for The Secret Art Prize by Curious Duke Gallery and also for the international Rise Art Prize.

            Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark can make industrial materials appear fluid, malleable and delicate. He continues to study different metals, looking at ways to manipulate and add movement to the material.

            Over the past 3 years Mark has been developing ways in which neon and LED’s can complement his sculptures, adding to the movement of a piece and catching the viewer’s eye.

            Mark has a strong academic background in art, having studied a BA Hons (International) in Contemporary Art Practice at Leeds University, with a period at the Australian National University at Canberra, and after an MA in European Arts Practice at Kingston University, Surrey. To date he has now exhibited in over 60 exhibitions, solo and group and has a strong following from collectors both in the UK and abroad.
