Rose Corcoran

Rose Corcoran studied History of Art at Edinburgh University (1991-1994), Fine Art at City and Guilds, London (1995-1998) and completed her Masters degree at the Royal College of Art in 2000.


Like her great predecessors in the depiction of animals, such as Rembrandt Bugatti, Antione-Louis Barye or George Stubbs, Corcoran seeks to convey movement and the potential for movement as well as the 'fearful symmetry' of her beasts and the very large scale of many of her drawings adds a further powerful Dimension to the work.


Corcoran is an artist both deeply traditional and clearly contemporary. Her work is dedicated to a secure future for her animal subjects in their natural habitat, which also assures her own future in the wider art world.
