Jood Gough

I am a Shropshire-born artist, but spent most of my adult life in Liverpool, living and working within the community arts scene. Having been away from Shropshire since I was 7 or 8 years old, I finally returned to live in Oswestry in 1998.

My work is usually landscape-based – fairly abstracted, and more and more incorporating the human figure. I make relief and intaglio prints, often combined, as well as using other techniques to produce quite complex images. When I paint I use acrylic and oil in various forms, and sometimes other mediums.

Recently I have started to explore 3D, with my first 3D show – an installation about landscape and the human figure – being in February 2012 at the Screamin’ Chicken Gallery. The pieces were made of clay (mostly) along with shell, bone, wood, ink, graphite, oils and chalk.

I garden – very important.

I am a member of ART SHED along with Janie Mcleod and Bob Knowles, and the Oswestry-based Borderland Visual Arts group.

I also teach life drawing and abstract art courses on a regular basis via the Worker’s Educational Association (W.E.A.), in Chester, plus on-going courses and one-off workshops to arts societies and clubs, and to community groups. These are usually in the North West and around the Wirral. In addition I am happy to consider private tuition in a variety of subjects.

I occasionally do work on a commission basis. If you’re interested, please talk to me.

      Hello Sarah, We run life drawing sessions in Oswestry in Bob’s Studio, Cambrian Buildings, (ie the same building as the Screamin Chicken Gallery) on Thursday evenings, 6.45-8.45pm. The fee for the model is £25 per session, plus tea/coffee, and biscuits, and I’m always happy to give new people a session to see if we like each other and can work together. Is Oswestry ok for you? Let me know on joodgough@gmail.com
      Best wishes
      Jood Gough
