About Carol Rhodes

Carol Rhodes was born in Edinburgh. She grew up in Bengal and returned to the United Kingdom at the age of fourteen to complete her education. She studied painting at Glasgow School of Art from 1977 to 1982. After a five-year gap, Rhodes resumed painting in 1990 and held her first solo exhibition in 1998. She is known for her paintings of fictional, apparently insignificant, landscapes which are usually viewed from an aerial perspective, which makes them look almost abstract. Recent exhibitions include Looking at the View, Tate Britain, London (2013) and The Ground Around, Vilma Gold, London (2010). Her works are in major collections including Tate, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut.

About Merlin James

In 2007 he contributed an essay on Carol Rhodes for her 2007 survey exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. In 2011, James and Rhodes established the exhibition space 42 Carlton Place in Glasgow together. The most recent project there, earlier this year, was Prunella Clough: Paintings.
