Roy Rasmussen (1919 – 2014) was a renowned English sculptor and Director of London artist organisation Free Painters and Sculptors.
Rasmussen was born in London, England in 1919, the third generation of a family of artists and metal craftsmen. Influenced by an uncle who traversed both those professional worlds, he also used his panel beating and sheet cutting skills in his long career as a sculptor, specialising in the use of aluminium.
Rasmussen exhibited numerous times throughout his life, both in the UK and abroad. From 1958 to 1967 he was co-director of the Woodstock Gallery, London where he also exhibited, and from 1967 he became resident artist of the newly opened John Whibley Gallery, Cork Street, London. This continued until the gallery closed a decade later.
Other exhibitions included:
1955 Aluminium Centenary Exhibition, Royal Festival Hall, London
1955 English Expressionists, Galerie Creuze, Paris
1960 ‘Art Alive’, Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, Northampton
1961 ‘Divergencies’, Qantas Gallery, Piccadilly, London
1966 21st Salon des Realites Nouvelles, Salle Balzac, Paris
1967 John Lewis Auditorium, Oxford Street, London
1985 ‘The Early Years of FPS’, Loggia Gallery, London
1989 ‘FPS: The First Two Decades 1952-72’, Loggia Gallery, London
Free Painters and Sculptors
Rasmussen was heavily involved for over 60 years with the art group Free Painters and Sculptors (FPS) acting as Director and Historian, as well as Director of the group's own gallery, the Loggia gallery at Buckingham Gate, London. Rasmussen wrote a comprehensive history of the group from its beginnings to the early 1990s.
One of his last exhibitions was 'Then and Now' in 2012 which celebrated 60 years since the founding of FPS.
The Roy Rasmussen Awards are held in his honour at the annual exhibition of FPS.
