About this Event

Join artist Joseph Paxton for this unique opportunity to draw Rosalind Ventris (viola) and Will Dutta (piano) from an open rehearsal. Plenty of tuition and guidance on-hand. All levels welcome. Materials supplied.

Who's Involved?

Joseph Paxton's work broadly explores what it is to be a living being - struggle, endeavour, behaviours, emotions and states of being. Both animal and human form are used to express the physical and psychological juxtapositions of strength, vulnerability, simplicity and complexity.

The connection between living beings and the environment, (both built and natural) and the exploration of the human animal, are common themes in his work.

Paxton was born in rural Wales and studied Fine Art at Newcastle University from 2001-2005. He currently lives and works in London. He is also a musician/violinist, from which he draws inspiration.

Rosalind Ventris leads an international career as a soloist and chamber musician. Her career was launched as a prize-winner of the Tertis Competition, aged 17. As a recitalist, she has appeared at the Bozar, Royal Festival Hall, Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, Flagey, Aldeburgh Festival, Slovak Philharmonic and the Concertgebouw. Rosalind has performed as soloist with the European Union Chamber Orchestra, Sinfonia Cymru, l’Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie and the Belgian National Orchestra. She has collaborated with Mitsuko Uchida at Marlboro Festival, the Arcanto Quartett at the Beethovenhaus in Bonn, and Gerhard Schultz at the Salzburg Festival, Tabea Zimmermann at the Wigmore Hall, and she has also given concerts with the Benedetti-Elschenbroich-Grynyuk Trio, and the Aronowitz Ensemble.

Recent engagements include performances at the Auditorium du Louvre, Båstad Festival, Het Concertgebouw, Bridgewater Hall, West Cork Festival and Machynlleth Festival. Rosalind has recorded for Delphian, Signum and Navona, and she has recorded Richard Blackford’s Kalon for string quartet and orchestra with the Czech Philharmonic. Rosalind read Music at Cambridge and studied with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She is the violist of flute, viola and harp ensemble Trio Anima and teaches at the Royal Irish Academy of Music.
