"Monochrome ink paintings. Created through mindful movement and the observation of the breath."
Rod McIntosh is an artist with his studio in the midst of the English countryside of rural Kent. He works between Kent and London as an exhibiting artist and is represented by several galleries and consultants working together to build a national and international profile for his work.
He studied figurative sculpture in Sheffield, graduating in 1992. He maintained a dynamic practice alongside a successful Arts Management and academic career until 2009. When he returned full-time to the studio.
His current work as a mark-maker lies within the tradition of drawing. With his body, the breath along with materials, and repetitive often-obsessive processes focus attention to the present. Observing and recording the moment of creation within a continuum.
He speaks of them as;
“Physical meditations, that offers himself, and the viewer, a moment to pause.”
