Statement

Born 1979 into a family of artists, 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.  Rose's figure paintings are often set within the natural world. 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 subsequently 'fired' from her firefighting job and has concentrated deeply on painting ever since. Landscape paintings transformed into figurative work as she rediscovered her love of depicting the human form.  Rose has installed paintings in red canyons as well as high snowy mountaintops to dip into environmental art and eco-feminism.  

 

The dichotomy of nature and culture influences Rose's figure paintings. She brings new light to how nudes have been portrayed as visual subjects in traditional and contemporary iconography.  Expressive nudes that she creates are often 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.  Stirring beauty in her work has remarkable power to engage the viewer.
