Painter and ceramicist.
Angela Rumble is a painter based near Faversham, Kent who received her MA in Fine Art (1999) at UCA Canterbury and recently completed 3 years of the Turps Banana correspondence course. She works predominantly in oils but also print, sometimes in combination. Her inspiration is to use trees and landscape as a starting point. Fragments are broken down into more abstract elements which are worked on to give obsessive and often confusing detail.
She has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad. She has shown twice at Wells Art Contemporary, her work is in the collection of Canterbury Museums and she has recently been elected as associate member of the Arborealists group.
More recently she has been making ceramics which are mostly hand built. The surfaces are largely monochrome and often relate to her paintings.
I am a painter who makes pots. I am interested in textures and pattern, earth colours and tones inspired by natural forms and, in particular, trees and woodland.
My family has been a mixture of artists and dentists…I am both.
An artist and a dentist.
I went to adult studies art classes at the age of ten.
I have always drawn and made things. As a dental student I was distracted by drawing anatomy and drawing out of the window when I should have been concentrating on dry subjects.
The moment I qualified as a dentist I started etching classes and never looked back. It led to ten years of printmaking followed by a part time fine art degree and MA followed by any post graduate study I could find.
My paintings used to use old medical photographs as starting point but gradually evolved with the human element being left out leaving behind the landscape alone. Trees now give me everything I need as a starting point. Fragments are broken down into more abstract elements which are worked on to give obsessive and often confusing detail.
My ceramic work started as a sideline which sits well in the spaces between painting activity. Over time it has taken on its own importance with the same ideas and inspiration as my painting.
It’s always there. I spend most of my time in the studio surrounded by work in progress and ideas half formed
My solo exhibition at Bermondsey Project Space. Just a shame it was in the middle of lockdown.
“Who did that dreadful painting in the waiting room?” It was a student work of mine – all dark sky and moody landscape and not appropriate to the audience of people wanting to be soothed before their dental appointment!
Ongoing tree projects for the Arborealists. This gives me new starting points with the promise of an exhibition opportunity at the end.
A forest residency with an exhibition at the end- somewhere good.
