Rob is interested in abstraction although his sketchbook work reflects sensitivity to the world around him. Observed studies can often form a platform for more subjective, imaginative and expressive work in which colour and attention to mark making make his work full of visual intrigue and suggestion. He evokes places between the real and the imaginary.
In recent years Rob's work has shown a feel for place and this is often influenced by the landscape he lives in and experiences on his travels. He is comfortable working small or very large scale, on paper, canvas or on an etching plate.
A recent exhibition in Autumn 2013 was well received by visitors to the show and at present he is working in the studio on new work for a major exhibition at Dean Clough Galleries starting on June 7th and running through until September 7th 2014. Rob's work can also be seen at Creation Arts in Beverley starting on August 6th 2014.
Rob's work can be purchased through attendance at his exhibitions later in the year or via his personal website. The link for this site is www.theartistrobmoore.co.uk
Studio Eleven is proud to present the Sandy Brown Exhibition from the internationally acclaimed artist and potter.
British born, Sandy trained in Japan; her ceramic art is built from a potters foundation in the creation of sacred objects for the Japanese tea ceremony. Her work evokes this tradition and expertise but has a contemporary energy and powerful exuberance. Brown's pots, appear relaxed and almost have a naive quality of the making, however, the objects are surprisingly practical. Some of the tea bowls and trays, call directly on Japanese forms. Her expressionist use of bold colour and pattern that transcribes to pots, sculpture and paintings are more evocative of painters such as Fiona Rae, Jackson Pollock or Howard Hodgkin. Brown models female figures, which she says reflect a part of herself. These range in height from 20cms to near-life-size, and possess an historical link with such votive figures as ancient mother goddesses or the female deities.
