Joshua Aubrook is a ceramicist based in medieval London, the epicentres of which being Southwark Cathedral, the Charterhouse, and the halls of St Mark’s of Spencer. Aubrook was born near a crossroad, his father was most likely a centaur, and his treasured possession is a signed copy of the Summa Theologiae, ‘Hang in there - Thomas Aquinas x.’ Aubrook’s mission is to use his creative practise, the most noble art of sculpture, to explore and respond to both medieval and modern Christian theological concepts, often concerning the themes of eschatology and paradise. Aubrook’s art seeks to educate his audience about the modern relevance of the creative and cultural revolutions of the Northern Renaissance; to celebrate the similarities between the medieval Ecclesiastical and modern Pop Art styles; and, following the Vitriacus style of the ‘Christian Wonderous,’ exploring how the search for religious faith and truth through art both meshes and clashes with a Postmodern world.
Aubrook holds a BA (Hons) Degree in Ceramics form the University for the Creative Arts.
Aubrook was shortlisted for the Wales Contemporary Awards, 2022, and has most recently exhibited through Bonhams in the Art of Craft auction, 2023.
