Colin Rose

Colin Rose was born in Newcastle in 1950. He studied at Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic (1973-76) and undertook post-graduate studies in sculpture at Newcastle University (1977-79).Colin Rose's work usually consists of using trees placed within the sculpture. “In his early work, he found 'homes' for objects in the trees around his studio. In 1984, he considered the idea of a tree being a place in the landscape, offering a harmony with the elements.” After this he began working with different landscapes. He most often combines his large scale structures with either metal or wood. Rose seeks to find a composition in which trees are thrown into a visual imbalance of either losing or damaging the branches.
