Bob Crooks: Alchemy

Bob's first exhibition at The Scottish Gallery in 2006 was Colour Reflection Refraction which marked a new phase in his work following his move to Devon in 2002. Another exhibition followed in September 2008, on the eve of the financial crisis and the artist's commitment to his craft has been unswerving, despite the costs of running a state-of-the-art hot glass studio through difficult times. Fast forward six years and Bob Crooks presents Alchemy, which brings together a stunning collection of new work, a creative tour de force full of daring and imagination.There is work on a grand and tiny scale and several new series which includes still life groups which seem to amplify his iconic use of colour. Devon is still the main inspiration behind the work; the landscape is the anchor for his forms and the pattern and colour of the flora is the source of his vivid colour palette.
