Adam Grose gained an MA in Fine Art at Falmouth University, Cornwall. His practice explores walking, collecting, recording & mapping journeys in landscapes and memories. These explore layered thoughts or scenes, juxtaposed to form an aesthetic re-presentation, a way of mapping to encapsulate an experience into one image. He collects rocks and soils from places visited, creating paints and printing inks for use in his work.
Grose explores hidden worlds through growing microbial worlds in Petri dishes. These are transformed into reduction prints, monotypes, etchings and drawings, combining art with science. He also explores monotype printing on postcards to represent travel, exploring the memory of being in a place whilst investigating non-perspectival imagery and painting/ printmaking practices.
Grose is a qualified PGCE art tutor and runs a variety of workshops with a range of learners. His previous positions included developing and delivery art programmes within Prison Education, PRUs, GCSE, A-Level and Postgraduate. His work is collected in private and public collections worldwide.
