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  moved through while collecting images to work on in his studio. Together with a phenomenological engagement with landscape, Rory is fascinated with the idea of 'inventing the medium'; of creating a novel process of image making specific to my concerns. Rorys pictures are made with oil and gesso on paper, wood or canvas, but also with ash, chalk, clay, wax and resin; and has  increasingly been incorporating digital and mechanical tools within a conventional painting practice.

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.
