About

Behind the Scenes Studio Visits

Chat with artists based at Spike Island, explore their studios and view works-in-progress during these informal encounters. Each artist gives a brief introduction to their practice followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.

Ben Rowe

Ben Rowe (b. Chatham, 1985) studied Fine Art at UWE, graduating in 2007. He lives and works in Bristol and has been a Spike Island studio holder since 2008.

Informed by the aesthetics of science fiction, Rowe utilises the particularities of his materials to meticulously sculpt mysterious objects from wood, creating mechanical, robotic and part-organic forms from an unknown, perhaps dystopian, future.

Rowe had his first major solo exhibition at Mission Gallery, Swansea in 2011 and won the Pangolin Editions excellence in sculpture award in 2013. Rowe continues to exhibit his work nationally, including in Bristol, Exeter, Cornwall, Coventry and Birmingham.
