As a native Wisconsinite (born and raised in Appleton) the ever changing forests and lakes are part of her soul. Forests reveal cycles of time and nature which emerge as rhythmic patterns of line, space, color, and texture in Rosing’s paintings and drawings. Environmental themes are embedded in her work and she is increasingly exploring climate change with respect to our forests.
Using paint mixed with gel mediums Rosing builds relief surfaces and scumble numerous layers of color to enhance the play of light and color. Her smaller and medium sized paintings are made on cradled birch panels or sometimes watercolor paper. The very large paintings are done on unstretched canvas and linen so they can be rolled for transport with a painted border that allows the work to be installed from grommets or to be stretched in its final home.
