Tracey Rowledge


Tracey Rowledge joined Cape Farewell on the 2008 Disko Bay Expedition, visiting the spectacular Disko Bay area of West Greenland with over 40 international artists, journalists and scientists. She exhibited work inspired by the voyage in Our Time In Ice, and Cape Farewell's touring exhibition U-n-f-o-l-d.

Tracey Rowledge is a British artist who works with the traditional materials and techniques of bookbinding and gilding, making books and wall pieces that explore the line between spontaneity and the deliberately crafted. Her work is held in many private and public collections including The British Library, The National Library of Scotland and The National Art Library (V&A).
