Mostly Figurative - Featuring Rosemary Barnett, Denise Dutton & Jack Skinner
During May 2014 the Granary Art Gallery will be showing a variety of sculpture and 2D work from three artists.
Staffordshire based sculptor Rosemary Barnett uses materials such as limestone, sandstone and bronze to create her figurative pieces. Trained at Kingston School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools, elected Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 1998, Rosemary was Principal of the Sir Henry Doulton School of Sculpture. When that school closed, Rosemary joined forces with Harry Everington, who shared her vision for sculpture, to form the Frink School of Sculpture in Stoke on Trent in 1996.
For many years she has admired and taken influence from Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi.
Denise has a passion for drawing and sculpturing equestrian themed work, looking at the anatomy, aesthetics and behavior of the horse, using bronze as her preferred medium. After completing a foundation course at Cambridge, Denise studied at the Sir Henry Doulton School of Sculpture.
The majority of her work is to commission and includes life size pieces such Amberleigh House, the winner of the 2004 Grand National and the last Maharaja of India, Duleep Singh, on horse-back unveiled by Prince Charles, on Button Island, Thetford.
She is currently working on a Memorial to honor the work of the Land Girls and Lumber Jill’s to be sited at the Staffordshire Arboretum.
Staffordshire based artist Jack Skinner will show his paintings, drawings and etchings. Complementing both sculptors who are exhibiting, Jack’s figurative work mainly shows domestic settings, which have been completed in situ or in the studio.
Jack studied paintings under British artist Bernard Fleetwood-Walker RA, at Birmingham College of Art. He was appointed head of Department of Fine Art at from 1980 until 1991.
Jack was awarded 1st prize at Keele University, Three Counties Open exhibition in November 2011. Since July 2012, some of his works were purchased for private collection of the Duke of Devonshire for Chatsworth.
