As part of our commitment to the local community and the arts, we have dedicated the wall space in the entrance foyer and meeting rooms at our 5-8 Broad Street office as a gallery for up-and-coming artists. Every three months on a rotation basis, we display the work of a single artist from Bristol or the surrounding areas. We have called this "The Fourth Plinth".
The artwork will be on display for all of our clients who come through the doors with numerous daily meetings, trials and conferences so the footfall is quite considerable. The artist displaying their work can display their information in the foyer as well as business cards, information sheets and a price list that clients can pick up and take away.
Currently we are displaying work by Ros Ford
Ros Ford Bio:
Ros Ford is a painter and printmaker, she works from BV Studios, Bedminster Bristol.
Her recent work is about the often bypassed urban landscapes in and around Bristol as well as Wales and Italy. In these she explores the unordered, the overlooked and sideshows of life.
She uses traditional etching techniques, usually on copper and steel. The details, often from high, imagined viewpoint are often lost in multiple layers and erasures reflecting natural and man-made changes in the location. She works in series, making research drawings and taking photographs on site and then undertaking a series of processes to make and print the plates.
She exhibits widely including the Royal Academy Summer exhibition, RWA Open exhibitions. Her work is in collections of the British Museum, HRH Queen Elizabeth, Bolton Museum and Art Gallery as well as other public and private collections in the UK and overseas.
Her awards and prizes include in 2018 a fellowship at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, Venice and in 2015 the Teresa Knowles Travel Bursary from the RWA, Bristol.
She is exhibiting at Guildhall Chambers a selection of etchings, drawings and other prints.
