Signet Contemporary Art, Kings Road presents landscape artists
Rosanne Barr & Claire Wiltsher alongside with Contemporary
Abstract painters Sara Sherwood & Vita James.
Rosanne Barr is a Scottish landscape artist, born in 1981 in the
Scottish village of Gartocharn, south end of Loch Lomond. She
studied Art and Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art
and Design graduating in 2003 with a First Class Honours Degree.
Rosanne paints instinctively, inspired by shifting skies or a distant
light or colour on the horizon. Using large brushes she swiftly
creates a sense of movement in each painting. Paint is applied
directly onto the Canvas, creating a fresh appearance often with
vivid colours. Roseanne builds up layers producing interesting
textures and depth.
Sara Sherwood creates vibrant and expressive works of art, her paintings of London and other skylines
reveal cities as we have never seen them before. Painting in oil on canvas she takes iconic and legendary
buildings and paints them into cityscapes full of colour and drama. As a contemporary artist Sara paints
with colours instinctively, blending with brushes and using a palette knife with intuition and spontaneity.
She believes "Inspiration comes from a source far greater than me, nature and everyday moments".
Claire Wiltsher is a professional Landscape painter working from her studio in the New Forest. Claire's
Paintings capture the different weather and mood of land and sea. She states that " total recognition
inhibits the imagination". She has a Master’s degree in Fine Art, and has exhibited in solo shows
throughout Britain as well as been a finalist in many competitions.
Vita James is a Contemporary Abstract painter. Her art incorporates much of the encounters and
influences she has experienced throughout her upbringing in rural Latvia and her life to date in London,
UK. Vita's work often reflects the contrast between the two worlds: complexity against simplicity, bold and
bright against pale and opaque, systematic control versus chaos and friction. Her work has evolved many
different forms and techniques - mixed media, photo based collages, sketches, oil and acrylic, abstraction
and systematic methodology.
