Rob Good

Rob Good studied at Bretton Hall College, in the midst of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park where he was first influenced by the beauty of the natural word. Still focusing on clouds in this year’s body of work, Rob explores different approaches to stone. By hollowing out the marble and working from clay and plaster maquettes, Rob uses multiple parts in order to truly portray the lightness, weightlessness and ephemeral nature of clouds in marble. By creating a far more realistic representation, Rob considers their various associations in nature and to the viewer. Finding the balance in shape, each sculpture reveals the mercurial nature of clouds - either forming the graceful silhouettes of lighter, softer clouds or highlighting the darker, more turbulent architecture of a cloud's formation.

Rob was born in London in 1982. He studied Fine Art at the University of Leeds, graduating in 2005 with a 1st class degree in Sculpture. Since then he has completed the MA Fine Art programme at Chelsea College of Art in 2014 and is involved in an on-going residency with Portland Sculpture and Quarry Trust. Rob was the winner of the 2017 Brian Mercer Fellowship for a sculptor working in stone to work at Studio Sem in Pietrasanta. The work that he made during this residency was shown at the RBS Gallery, Brian Mercer Residencies: Bronze Casting, Stone Casting in London in February 2018.
