Some People Forget to be Humble – Rosie Crawley – Wimbledon College of Arts


Oil, Chalk and Spray paint on canvas

120 x 80cm

I manipulate the human body to convey the modern world that I live in. I use the figure and portraiture to describe the fragility of human life. My practice responds to an individual’s personal experience of a traumatic disturbance; the future is unknown and at any minute something could turn our lives upside down. What we see as beautiful today might not be tomorrow.

The audience interprets the work individually; the power of colour can turn something that is potentially morbid into something beautiful. By painting I am able to understand my fears; this is the power of my practice. It is an attempt to right the wrongs of my experiences, as I perceive them.

Price: £750
