Born in 1967, Danny Rolph is an internationally renowned artist based in London.
Driven by a unique approach to colour, he produces compositions with attitude and visual dexterity. His works are held in public and private collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC and Tate, London.
In 2022 Danny was the recipient of the Mark Rothko Memorial Trust Award. Established in 1973 but relaunched in 2018, the award invites a select number of artists to reside for a month at the Mark Rothko Art Centre in Daugavpils, Latvia for intensive art practice, travel experience and opinion exchange.
Mark Rothko (1903-1970) was born in Daugavpils before moving to the USA where he became an expert in Abstract Expressionism and Colour Field painting.
The Mark Rothko Art Centre is one of the most ambitious cultural projects in Eastern Europe. A multifunctional hub for contemporary art, culture and education, it is based in the historical artillery arsenal building of Daugavpils Fortress.
During his time at the Mark Rothko Art Centre, Danny Rolph produced 31 small painted canvases.
Originally presented in the studio context in which they were created, Common Room Projects are delighted to re present the works in the UK one year after they were made. The exhibition runs from 9 Sept—4 Nov 2023 and will be accompanied by a talk on 7 October.
Please join us and Danny on Saturday 9 Sept, the space will be open from 11am to 3pm.
