New Balcony Gallery exhibition: Colin Rose

New Balcony Gallery exhibition: Colin Rose

On display on our Balcony Gallery this month are a collection of acrylic works by artist Colin Rose.

“I trained as an illustrator and graphic designer and worked in this field for a number of years, whilst living in Cumbria and Cheshire. During this time I started to develop and exhibit my own work which was often based on the local landscape but sometimes became more semi-abstract in style.”

“I continue to work in the same way now that I have have moved to Shropshire, making sketchbook studies and taking photographs on my walks which I later work up into finished pieces. I sometimes create “composites”, incorporating a variety of viewpoints, such as the Erddig paintings included in this exhibition.”

“I tend to work in acrylic but also incorporate mixed media on occasion. Recently, I have started to develop the work further using lino and mono print techniques.”

To see his work visit the gallery before 31st March. You can also see some of his works here…
