Meg Wroe

Meg Wroe

Meg is a London based artist painting in oils and acrylics on canvas, wood or slate.

She wants to capture a sense of wonder in the midst of her urban neighbourhood. Recent work is inspired by the trees of her local area; they are the lungs of our city – with all the noise of life their presence is like a song. The work reflects the poetic resonance of objects and light, the quiet magnificence of the trees.

Away from the city Meg makes an annual visit to the Scottish Isle of Iona, where the sea and sky meet blue on blue. She created the ‘Trinity – After Rublev’ icon which was used in the Greenbelt service last year, and has been used in St Paul’s Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral. Her paintings can be seen on her website www.megwroe.com

Meg graduated from Central St Martin’s University of the Arts London, in 2006, and did post-graduate studies at the Art Academy, London Bridge 2016/17 She has exhibited in solo and group shows and has delivered art workshops in Bethlehem, South Africa and Brazil, and making work around these experiences. Her next exhibition is at the Coningsby Gallery, Tottenham Street, London W1T 4RJ from 23 – 28th September 2019.

At Greenbelt this year Meg will be doing a wire-sculpture workshop, helping people to create their own free-style sculptures out of aluminium wire.
