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.

      Jad Oakes

      London-based Jad Oakes explores the possibilities of photography and the moving image for sculptural installations, prints and photogravures.

      His works are presented as collections or bodies of work that are connected by their process, theme and technique. The main thread that ties these bodies of works together is a fascination with memory and time.

      Since 2014 he has developed and nurtured an ongoing series of small scale silent looping film installations housed in wooden sculptures titled Vessels.

      Condensed Vessel Videos:

      Dreams of Somewhere Else
      Moonscape 50
      Memory Vessel

      Using timbers of Oak, Walnut and Bog Oak these moving image sculptures seek to connect with the viewer by projecting them into an alternative space and time.

      Of the Vessels series he notes a desire to “create intimate emotive sculptures, enticing contemplation and memory.”

      Jad Oakes was awarded the Aesthetica Prize at the 2019 ING Discerning Eye Exhibition.

        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.

          Tom Waugh

          Tom Waugh MRSS is a British sculptor based in Somerset. He has been an associate member of the Royal Society of Sculptors since 2018. In 2005 he gained a First in Architectural Stone Carving at the City and Guilds of London Art School and has spent time in India studying traditional carving techniques with the temple carver Raja Saceran.

          ‘I find it fascinating that sculpture has the ability to cause a shift in people’s perception. In my work I hope to challenge ideas of material value and make people look again at the things we take for granted.’

          Tom Waugh carves stone and marble in minute detail to mirror the discarded waste of human consumption. These objects document the tiny imprints of human use. Plastic bags, cardboard boxes and tin cans are squashed, crushed and wrinkled whilst still displaying the traces of mass production.

          His carving can be seen on St Pancras Station, St Martin in the fields and St Georges Chapel, Windsor. His Sculptures are exhibited widely and can be seen in the collections of Warwick University and Gladstone’s Library.

            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.

                Lizzie Farey

                Lizzie Farey’s intricate structures capture a still moment, a distillation and order. Calm after a storm.

                Intimate forms provide a hint of the process of creation. We can see and even feel points of tension in the work. Our eye can follow the artist’s hand, the choices made in twisting and turning this flexible medium.

                Born in Singapore, for the last 30 years Farey has been based in rural Galloway, in Scotland’s South West. The rural setting of home and studio are her guiding inspiration, her sensitivity with wood revealing an interaction with nature that is deeply personal.

                Lizzie Farey grows much of her own pallet of artist’s materials. Planting, tending and harvesting a range of willow which is grown for both texture and colour.

                Willow, it’s flow of flex and tension is often manipulated into rhythmic patterns, Artist, willow, form, each unique, reach a perfection as the work comes together, inner creative process and final form working as one.

                ‘My work engages with nature. I focus on recreating the essence of natural form through the medium of willow, larch, ash, hazel and other locally grown woods. Influences from Japan continue to inspire my attempts to capture the simplicity, practicality and beauty of the materials.’

                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.

                  Pierre Diamantopoulo

                  Pierre Diamantopoulo has two distinct strands to his figurative style. They seem to be intellectually and emotionally worlds apart, but they share the same impetus.

                  One is a cool and measured response to a profound sense of unrest. In this work, figures fly in defiance or are challenged by their environments. They ‘trippingly’ negotiate upheaval or uncertainties — each work is a balancing act, a metaphor for a precarious state of living or existence. Androgynous and anonymous human figures tilt and fall away – on and off objects that also teeter on a chaotic or shifting stage. Figures may be set free against strongly convergent lines, shapes and forms.

                  The other strand of Pierre Diamantopoulo’s practice is ambiguous, allegorical and atavistic, but still concerned with mercurial forces. Here, he works on impulse— mixing dark foolery, the poetic and the literary with theatre and folklore— blended with a sort of logical nonsense. This may be a voyage into the past, personal or absurd, diverted by the raw and primitive, with the wit, the mimic and maverick on board. These works are often executed with an immediate, freer hand, exploiting the texture of the raw material.

                    Dorothy Brook

                    Dorothy Brook became a sculptor in a roundabout way. She had studied Graphic Design at St Martins School of Art and worked as a freelance designer for about 10 years. When circumstances changed, a friend suggested she join a sculpture class. She loved it having no idea that she would be able to work in three dimensions having been used to seeing everything from a graphic and linear perspective.

                    To her surprise her graphic background gave her work a very different look. The lines and curves have to flow when viewed from every angle. The form is pared down until all that is left is its essence. Ultimately the aesthetic of the piece is the most important element.

                    Although Dorothy may start a sculpture with an armature and an idea of what she is going to make, it very often changes during the process. It is the sculpture that dictates where it is going and she follows, refining the lines as it progresses. Usually working in plaster as she finds it is easier to achieve the sharp edges and smooth surfaces that define her style. ‘I love to capture the split second that epitomizes the dynamic of a movement, just as a photograph would – the frozen moment.’

                    Dorothy Brook still loves the process as much as she did in that first sculpture class. The realisation that her drawings can and have come to life is very satisfying, not bad for a Graphic Designer!
