Statement

Born in 1979, Meredith Rose grew up in Philadelphia and a remote island in Maine. She received her BFA in Painting from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) and completed their European Honors Program in Rome.  Summers during RISD and afterward were spent on unique trail crews where they carried axes and lived in the woods.  Wildfire was her next endeavor while painting flaming landscapes such as Kuwaiti oil fields aflame.  Rose was later 'fired' from her firefighting job.  Landscape paintings transformed into figurative work as she rediscovered her love of depicting the human figure.  In a colorful series of art videos, Rose performs paintings in extreme environments internationally to redefine what a “solo exhibition” truly is.

 

Nature and culture, ethnicity and identity influence Rose's figure paintings.  She brings new light to how women have been portrayed as visual subjects.  Expressive figures that she creates are painted from live models and then incorporated into the natural world.  Rose paints on hemp linen for environmental reasons.  Her charcoal and conte figure drawings are high contrast and sharp in execution.  In a colorful series of ongoing art videos, Rose performs paintings in extreme environments internationally to redefine what a “solo exhibition” truly is.  Stirring beauty in her work has remarkable power to engage the viewer.
