MEET ROSSO CRIMSON
CONNECT WITH ROSSO
In her portraiture, Rosso Emerald Crimson renders female subjects who emerge through a haze of pastels and muted tones.
The artist often depicts the women and girls staring forward with unsmiling expressions and are reimagined within timeless landscapes.
Technically, while the portrayal of the figures is achieved by a meticulous rendering using traditional oil painting techniques, the deconstruction (and reconstruction) of the surrounding derives from the juxtaposition of different media, including spray paint, vigorous scraping and scratching of the surface and application of metal leaf and gilding. The creative process is deliberately chaotic in the making yet geared towards the achievement of a sense of harmony and a visually engaging imagery.
