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.”
