Rose Rose PhD Fine Art


INCIPIT: ['A PIECE OF NATURE'] 2014 ,expands this notion of plurality, begun in recent series PORTRAIT OF A LANDSCAPE []. Through a series of signs/symbols presented within images of my local Derbyshire landscape, I aim to explore the idea of the world is a "totality of facts, not of objects" [Wittgenstein]. These facts are about the different perceptions of the local geography over a long period of time. There are to be 8 works, each exploring a different view of time passing [from Antiquity to the Present Day]; diverse materials from wax to chalk will be used with ancient scripts.The images will have comments on each piece, which will describe the from and content of the sequence as it moves through stages like a film set or a story. The aim is draw in local rural audiences who may in turn expand their views on art practice beyond the traditional.
