Rory Prout

Rory Prout is an Irish artist living and working in East Sussex. Concerned with an
embodied perception of place, his paintings address experiences of remote or
rural landscapes, of sites he has visited and environments he has moved through
while collecting images to work on in the studio.

Together with a phenomenological engagement with landscape, he is fascinated with the idea of 'inventing the medium'; of creating a novel process of image making specific
to his concerns. His pictures are made with oil and gesso on paper, wood or
canvas, but also with ash, chalk, clay, wax and resin; and increasingly
incorporating digital and mechanical tools within a conventional painting

Rory Prout graduated with a BA in Painting from Limerick School of Art and
Design in 2008 and an MA in Modern and Contemporary Art History, Theory
and Criticism from University College Cork in 2015. He has held solo
exhibitions in Ireland and the UK, and appeared in group shows in institutions
such as The Royal Academy of Arts London, Towner Eastbourne, and Limerick
City Gallery of Art. In 2015 Prout was the Painter in Residence for the Irish
Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The same year he was also awarded the
Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award at The Burren College of Art on the west
coast of Ireland.
