‘Follow the Stream’
1st September – 30th September 2017
Roseann’s work tends to be somewhat improvised, working and experimenting, having one thing leading into another with free association. A wash of colour and ink, a pen line, strategically placed embroidery. The tactile quality of her work is as important as the visual qualities. Themes of her work include preservation, memory, behaviours, social acceptance, living in a media dominate world, and many more.
Opening – Friday 1st September 7pm
