The Penelope Rose Gallery is NOW OPEN.
NEW WEBSITE BLOG for THE Penelope Rose GALLERY CLICK HERE
This new venture has been made possible by
on Arabella Street just located just behind 31 Albany Rd, Roath, Cardiff (which is the Switch Vape Shop) CF24 3RQ.
I took a few years break from curating exhibitions and events in Cardiff to follow my Artsci Creativity and tutoring. However, Sativaworx approach me a short while ago and invited me to work in conjunction with them to create THE Penelope Rose GALLERY, so how could I refuse?!
It is a collabouration to support each other and introduce new products and Art to help benefit wellbeing for the mind and body.

The current exhibition is running for a few more weeks it is a retrospective of work that became the ignition for my Artsci creations and collaborations. Following on from this there will be an elite selection of rising stars local and international artists work adorning the gallery walls and space with their creations.
The official opening party will be announced shortly. To bring a close to the current exhibition and introduce the next artist and private view dates...

A little about me....
I am a Artsci Creator, Curator and Educator based in Cardiff and the Vale, primarily focused on what is known in the public eye as “artsci”: creating works of art that explore scientific concepts and find new ways to imagine, explain and represent concepts that can be very difficult to communicate through graphs, terminology and statistics alone. Simply put: it blends scientific data with imagination and creativity to celebrate cutting edge ideas at the frontiers of our exploration of the universe in which we find ourselves. It all began with the work that can be seen in this retrospective exhibition.
Commissioned by academic departments in Wales and England; the University College London’s Cosmoparticle Initiative , Cardiff School of Physics and Astronomy and 'New Signals' project for Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC), creating large-scale paintings, videos and illustrations exploring concepts ranging from a variety of scientific fields: particle physics, cosmology, dark matter, gravitational waves, geometry, the golden ratio, mathematical patterns, infinity, and most recently, neuroscience and consciousness.
My work has been published in Physics World, CERN Courier, CCQ, and a wide variety of academic and institutional blogs. I work through a mixture of mediums; video, audio, watercolour, acrylic, collage, sketching, bilateral ink and pen, digital art, video, and oil on canvas.
In recent years my work has primarily focused on magnetism, particle physics, cosmology and neuroscience, I am not limited to any scientific field, and am passionate about meeting new researchers, exploring new ideas, and delivering innovative commissions and education programmes.
My methodology for commissions in Artsci is to first immerse myself in the complexity of the research, ideas and data by conversing intimately with the scientists to fully dive into their thoughts and ideas. Through consultation with collaborators; we form a specific brief and produce a satisfying outcome for all. It is through the sharing of ideas that I begin to visualize an Artsci-work, and the seed is sown in my brain. Over a short time, as the thoughts turn through my mind and the seed germinates and grows, I start to intuitively feel how the Artsci-work or education activity will form. My creative process essentially involves defining the scientific research and distilling it into an elegant and comprehensible simplicity.
My training is purely artistic – I received my Ba Hons in Fine Art from the Cardiff School of Art and Design in 2001, and then completed Professional Graduate Certificate in Education in Further Education at the University of Wales in Newport in 2006. I tutor people of all ages and abilities in life drawing and techniques in watercolour, drawing, acrylic and oil, for Vale Courses and Llanover Hall Arts Centre Cardiff.
Over the years I have been increasingly drawn to explore ideas from some of the most technically complex, mathematically intricate and truly mind-boggling revelations from the towers and laboratories of academia. Perhaps I seek to merge art and science to calm the tubulations of the ultimate puzzle – what does it mean to exist – and to ponder and discover science’s ultimate promise: What next?
