Rosie Emerson is an award winning contemporary artist from Dorset, now residing in Brighton with her young family. Rosie Emerson’s art work is almost exclusively on representing the female form; her enigmatic images, which feel almost ephemeral, strike a wonderful balance between fragility and strength.
The subject matter is used to explore beauty, power and voyeurism: depicted as solitary performers, the women are objects of desire trapped in enigmatic images of both irresistibility and impotence.
Career highlights include being Artist in residence at Somerset House, Exhibitions at the RWA, Bristol and the Southbank Centre. A Finalist for the Young Masters Prize and shortlisted for the Rise Art Print Award, Emerson was also commissioned by Hackney WickED Arts Festival to create a new Guinness World record and create the world’s largest Cyanotype photograph.
Her work is widely collected and exhibited both in the UK, as well as internationally, through galleries, art fairs and museums. She has also been commissioned by brands and individuals including Sony, Triumph Underwear, Redbull, P&O Cruises, Toms, and Annoushka jewelry working with models Amber le Bon, Daisy Lowe and singer Eliza Doolittle. Her work has also been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Another Magazine, The Financial Times Magazine and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.
Rosie Emerson’s art was picked out as one of seven “future classics” by Will Ramsay, founder of the Affordable Art Fair. Will Ramsay has described Rosie Emerson’s work as, “beautiful, highly original and certainly collectable.”
Collected and exhibited worldwide, she has secured representation by some top galleries in New York and London, where she is being shown alongside Banksy, Shepard Fairey and Pure Evil.
