Rocks to Rock Up at Whitewall Galleries

Rocks to Rock Up at Whitewall Galleries

Saturday 12th November
1pm - 3pm

Chris & Steve Rocks
Joint Winners
 New Artist of the Year

Whitewall Galleries at the VQ warmly invites you to meet the award winning artists, Chris and Steve Rocks and view an exclusive new collection of their highly sought after original paintings that will be unveiled at the event.

Chris and Steve Rocks represent a unique phenomenon in the world of fine art. Twin brothers who were born only seven minutes apart, they have created an extraordinary artistic partnership, due to a closeness and understanding that is beyond the imagination of most of us. They have worked together throughout their lives, and each of their striking oils on canvas is a true collaboration both in terms of technique and approach - a united response from both artists.

“We work on every one of our paintings together,” the Rock brothers explain. “We find that our ideas inspire and of course influence one another and we talk over each piece as we work on the composition. Although we have few disagreements, we do learn from one another, and continually push ourselves and therefore inevitably our partnership, towards ever increasing artistic challenges.”

The stunning abstract images that these extraordinary brothers produce are inspired by the overwhelming power of nature. While exploring the effects of light on land, sky and water, they aim to capture a moment in time, a unique and therefore unrepeatable experience. Their intention is to make the viewer aware that in art, as in life, everything is constantly changing. The passion and intensity of each piece reflects both their individual artistic aims and their personal journey through life -sometimes difficult, often fascinating, but never dull.
