Guinness world record holder, winner of The Bridgeman Studio Award 2015 and Artist in Residence at Somerset House. Her work was picked out as one of seven “future classics” by Will Ramsay, founder of the Affordable Art Fair. Ramsay has described 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 shown alongside Banksy, Shepard Fairey and Pure Evil. In September 2015, Rosie Emerson came to Essex, in a solo show curated and hosted by the TURNER | BARNES | GALLERY.
Enigmas, brought together for the first time, a combination of all the mediums used by Emerson; the works on display included photography, cyanotypes and hand-finished silkscreen prints. There were some rare editions of older works and a number of new editions, which had not been seen before.
Rosie joined us to discuss her work at a private view to launch the exhibition.
