About the piece
A reflection in a busy tourist shop in Piccadilly in London, toy or doll soldiers, the hectic interior of the shop hebing them and the artist's hand on the camera photographing them and the street reflected behind. Another shop window reflection painting - child soldier, real and imaginary characters in a scene broken by reflections. A complex and difficult painting that takes a lot of looking at to understand the different picture planes portrayed. This painting was framed with an ornate moulded black frame - it is slightly damaged - scratched so will need reframing.

About the artist
LIke many makers, the small encounters with a scene or scenario can affect the work Rosie produces. The artist suspended in the window - the shop front, inside, and the street reflected behind. A complex play on different perceived picture planes. Rosie often revisits shop window reflection painting.

ROSIE BURNS



Rosie is inspired by light and life, her work can be broadly split into two - the figure and the landscape, although helicoidal pattern within composition connects all of the work - the spiraling form of the universe, DNA, shells, surf, clouds, can be found in most of her work.

The sky generates a universal language, whatever the human experience we all experience the sky, Rosie has an infatuation with this language and the full spectrum of colour it generates: especially when interconnected with the places where the land meets the sea and the light dances between surfaces.

Like many makers, the small encounters with a scene or scenario can affect the work Rosie produces. The artist suspended in the window - the shop front, inside, and the street reflected behind. A complex play on different perceived picture planes. Rosie often revisits shop window reflection painting.

Rosie wants to depict women as thinkers, strong, singular entities not mother or queen or sex object, able to indulge and be guilty of sloth or envy, and still maintain feminine beauty – sirens. The depiction of women in art has been a preoccupation through a degree in Archaeology: the goddess figures of fertility, the possibility of matriarchal societies in the Neolithic and the dominance of homemaker, gatherer roles for women. Experiencing depictions of women in Degas delicate dancers and burlesque bathers, Rodin’s fallen in the gates of hell and sexualised drawings of women, Henry Moore’s gigantic queens and powerful mothers cradling infants reinforce the same depictions investigated in Archaeology.

Rosie has been attending life drawing for many years, her nude prints are made on a mount-board plate direct from life, this gives the prints a direct and expressive feel.
