Tide Flow – Time Flow

Rob Mulholland

About: My practise aims to explore all aspects of life. I’m interested in the theme of ancestry and continuity. Our world is in constant flux and our own personal lives are shaped by political and social powers beyond our control. I want to celebrate the individual, explore the resonance we have with the natural environment and convey how we are affected by the elemental forces of life and creation. Rob Mulholland 2013 Biography Rob Mulholland was born in 1961 in Glasgow, Scotland. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art and graduated with a BA [Hons] degree in 1 986. Since his emergence in the early 1 990’s Mulholland has created thought provoking, conceptual art installations such as ‘Green Man’ 1 991 , Glasgow which was over 300 feet long and made from over 300,000 re-cycled drinks cans. His current series of mirrored stainless steel sculptures and installations absorb their environment and reflect the constant flux of movement day by day. This relationship with nature is further explored in Mulholland’s series of de-constructivist sculptures such as ‘ Skytower’ and ‘Random Act of De-constructivism‘ in which the natural forces of wind and gravity appear to re-shape the structural forms. His work explores the human relationship with the wider environment. His approach is not judgmental, more reflective and questioning about the ever-changing world around us. The human desire to leave a trace of ones-self for future generations has always intrigued him; the driving force to create and leave a semblance of our-selves as individuals and as a society. Mulholland’s environmental installations ask us to look again and consider the symbiotic relationship we have with our natural and man-made environment.
Work: ‘Tide Flow – Time Flow‘ is part of a group exhibition at the newly opened Caol Ruadh Sculpture Park overlooking the Kyles of Bute, Argyll, Scotland. ‘ Tide Flow – Time Flow ‘ has been installed on the shores of the Kyles of Bute. As the tide ebbs and flows, the reflections of the sun and sea constantly alter the appearance of the mirrored stainless steel forms creating a kinetic surface that moves to the rhythm of the sea. The Cretaceous sea-forms, standing alongside the human figures, are a reference to our genetic past and ask us to consider our evolutionary journey thus far.

Luz do sol, o subir e descer da maré e a costa. Esses elementos tornam-se mutáveis reflexos em esculturas humanas e de espécies cretáceas. A proposta de “Tide Flow – Time Flow”, do artista Rob Mulholland, é refletir sobre nossa jornada evolutiva. As silhuetas são moldadas em aço inoxidável. O resultado visual é fantástico.

His work explores the human relationship with the wider environment. His approach is not judgmental, more reflective and questioning about the ever-changing world around us. The human desire to leave a trace of ones-self for future generations has always intrigued him. It’s a driving force to create and leave a semblance of our-selves as individuals and as a society. The reflective figures ask us to look again and consider the symbiotic relationship we have with our natural and man-made environment.

Each new installation adds to his visual dialogue. The themes of ‘sense of place’ and ‘ancestry ‘ persist in many of the works. In recent studio based installations Rob as introduced projected images over the figures. This new development in his work reflects his interest in the passing of time as the images projected are in slow motion. A single drop of water takes minutes to fall and disperse. The mood is poignant and atmospheric and allows us just a brief reprieve from the frenetic world.

UK-based artist Rob Mulholland recently created a new site-specific installation for a group exhibition at the Caol Ruadh Sculpture Park in Scotland. Unlike his forest blending glass statues, Tide Flow – Time Flow consists of stainless steel forms that stand on the shores of the Kyles of Bute, one of the most stunning areas of coastal sceneries in Scotland.

The mirrored figures reflect the beautiful scenery around them. As one visitor stated, “They’re shape changers – depending on where you stand – because they take to themselves the colour and texture of their surroundings.”

Mulholland describes them this way, “As the tide ebbs and flows, the reflections of the sun and sea constantly alter the appearance of the mirrored stainless steel forms creating a kinetic surface that moves to the rhythm of the sea. The Cretaceous sea-forms, standing alongside the human figures, are a reference to our genetic past and ask us to consider our evolutionary journey thus far.”

Mulholland’s work explores the human relationship to the natural environment. He asks the view to reflect and question the ever-changing world around us.

The Caol Ruadh Scupture Park just opened on June 24. It will showcase and sell contemporary sculpture created in Scotland. Amongst open woodland, massive rock bluffs and grassland running to the shore, intriguing sculptures are just waiting to be found. Tide Flow – Time Flow is open to the public until the end of September 2012.
