ABOUT

Rosannagh graduated from Oxford Brookes in 2016 with 1st Class Honours in Fine Art and was awarded the Fine Art Dissertation Prize, awarded to the best critical submission in the graduating year. With a background in Theatre, she has exhibited in Oxfordshire, London and more recently Rome, but finds most inspiration for her work in the wilderness, spending as much time as she can immersed in wild spaces around the UK, particularly in Scotland. Rosannagh's work explores the alchemy of painting by abstracting colour and form through exposure to elemental forces. Unconventional materials are mixed in experimental ways that work with - rather than against - the transformative effects of fire, rain, ice, time, or gravity to reflect and augment the untameable nature, and unlikely beauty, of the world around us. 

Outside of her studio practice, Rosannagh enjoys working with Branch Arts, assisting with the production, curation and media campaigns of large-scale, international art projects.

“I’m fascinated by growth and decay - the way in which something beautiful can form quite accidentally: a flash of lichen on a rock; the scattering of ashes after a fire; even the spread of damp across a wall. These naturally occurring marks and imprints form the basis of my painting. They develop in the same way, with the same uncertainty’
