Rosie creates original abstract paintings with sculptural elements in a body of work she calls ‘seams.’ She invented this process of sculpting in paper within a canvas in 2003 and continues to explore the language pushing the boundaries between sculpture and painting. Here the remnants of a word or colour plane sit within three dimensional curves, dips and lines.
Rosie borrows from her memories of her mother working as a tailor at her Brother sewing machine and sees them as autobiographical – combining her mother’s skills with the language of paint. She has also used the technique in her community projects ie What becomes of the dreams of children? Please see Project page.
