  • Esther Rolinson is known for her light installations.  She has a significant number of permanent public art installations throughout the UK and, this year, won The Lumen Prize Sculpture and 3D Award,  for her piece 'Flown'.  Esther's  drawings were acquired for the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in early 2016, and this year she also won first prize at the inaugural Art CHI Exhibition, Computer and Human Interaction Conference, San Jose, California.

     

    Drawings are central to Rolinson’s work both as pieces in their own right and as blueprints for her three-dimensionaworks.  Through them she explores structures and patterns by using simple configurations to render overall forms.  At the heart of her most detailed pieces are coherent rules of construction, reflecting her fascination with the orders that are bound inside apparently chaotic organic systems.  Starting with handmade pencil drawings on paper,  she then digitally manipulates those original versions to experiment with forms in light and colour.  

     

    GRAVITATE  showcases Rolinson's latest series of drawings.  These meditative works, much like mandalas, have grown slowly through repetition to create complex circular structures.  In these works she has used combinations of curved and straight lines as a visual mantra to allow a flow of forms to emerge. Through them, Rolinson explores the felt sense of being and connection between things.  

     

    A new body of work in its own right, this series of drawings is also the first stage in making new light works that will be developed with her regular collaborator, Artist Programmer Sean Clark. Together, they will work towards forming the final interactive installations that have developed directly from these pieces.  The animation of 'Signal' (the final work in this exhibition) is a programmed work where Esther and Sean are experimenting with moving light and connecting the pieces to a network of structures that respond to each other and their environment.  Baby Forest will spotlight this progression as the work  builds over the next year.'
