Rosie Emerson

Rosie Emerson is a multidisciplinary printmaker working almost exclusively on representing the female form, elevating her subjects to a goddess-like status. Inspired by her love of theatre, performance, shrines and rituals, she uses dramatic lighting, hand-made costumes, set and prop making, alongside printmaking and painting to create works which play between the familiar and the otherworldly. 

“It is definitely more of an idea that I am portraying, rather than a portrait, and of course it’s self-reflective. It’s to do with fantasy and creating other worlds.”
