The partnership between Gray’s School of Art (Robert Gordon University) and RockRose Energy has been one of unexpected outcomes. By placing students within the work place, and challenging them to respond to the threads that connect the people that make those places what they are, both the students and the employees have reassessed the image of the North Sea oil industry. 

Where the stereotypical image may be one of heavy industry, the outcomes that the students have produced in collaboration with Rockrose Energy have seen it squarely through the lens of a people centric work place.

As such, this exhibition presents the development and achievements of local talent, whilst telling distinctly human stories. Stories that are not often seen from an industry, which typically has its most iconic structures seated just over the horizon.

The exhibition will showcase a mix of work from all ten students who have received support and mentoring through this ongoing collaboration. Bringing together photography, sculpture, painting, sound art and graphic design to showcase the work facilitated by Rockrose Energy, and highlight the progressive trajectory these students exhibited directly due the support they received.
