We are excited to collaborate with Rose Shuckburgh to launch new and exclusive works on paper fundraising for Rose's nominated charity, OutRight Action International to help their invaluable work supporting the LGBTQI community suffering from the war in Ukraine. Rose's new works have been inspired by her Welsh roots and the countryside where she lives, the patchworks of shapes within the body of a hillside, and the thin paths that stretch across them like fine threads. Two pieces from this series are inspired by the Welsh figure Arianrhod, who is the Welsh goddess of the moon and of cycles.
Rose Shuckburgh is a UK based artist whose practice encompasses painting, printmaking, and film. Shuckburgh’s recent work depicts a personal and emotional response to place, centring around the experience of the lone figure isolated within their surroundings, and the energy created from two forms meeting. This push and pull between isolation and connection is a constant dialogue throughout her work. Spending time in the natural landscape, with standing stones, or rock or land formations moulded over time, she felt as if she were in the presence of another body, one that was filled with the memories and emotions of that place. Moving between representation and abstraction, these forms and the human figure are depicted as vessels of feeling, placed within a charged stillness. Her work catalogues a sense of familiarity and of the passing of time in relation to the place she grew up in The Elan Valley, Wales. Shuckburgh recently graduated from City and Guilds of London Art School and is the recipient of the Royal Watercolour Society New Graduate Award (2022), The Richard Ford Award (2019), she was shortlisted for The Painter-Stainer’s Company Student Award (2018), was the winner of The Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Work at The Foundation Show (2016).
