Glasgow International 2020

Bryony Rose

Bryony Rose (b. 1993 in Chicago, U.S.A) lives and works between Glasgow and Dumfries, U.K. Rose works with clay to create small scale models that are positioned to evoke landscapes and realms. Her work draws on the imagery of fantasy table-top games, and the mythology and fan fiction surrounding them. By using traditional, almost pastiche, imagery found in the fantasy genre, Rose is exploring the tension between the natural, linear flow of history and the artificial cyclical fiction of mythology. 

Solo shows include: Realm of Ruin, Back Room, Holdron’s Arcade, London, U.K. (2017).

Group shows include: You’re Too Kind, TYVM Summer Residency, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, U.K. (2017); Carillon, Glasgow Open House Festival, Glasgow, U.K. (2017).

Bryony Rose, Frank Polatch, George Ridgway, Jessie Whiteley, Lewis Prosser, Lilian Ptáček, Lizzie Watts, and Megan Jones

Say What I Am Called


Say What I Am Called takes inspiration from the riddling culture of the Middle Ages to re-engage our delight in paradox, inversion and the unexpected.

At a time when boundaries are either being created or reinforced it seems more relevant than ever to parody and subvert systems of control. Come and navigate an interactive sculpture garden dominated by large obstacles and carefully crafted moments of intimacy: oil paintings encased within aluminium structures; screen-printed banners adorning the walls, ceramic mementos amidst the debris and digital avatars will guide you on your journey.

Supported by WAVEparticle as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces, by Glasgow City Council through the Visual Artist & Craft Makers Award and The Eaton Fund.
