RoSSO Emerald Crimson

Rosso’s art revolves around femininity and her identity as a woman in our contemporary society. The female figures are predominant in her paintings and are placed within imaginary, timeless spaces made up of dreams, childhood memories and pure fantasies. Through portraiture and self-portraiture especially, Rosso explores and addresses feelings and taboos connected to gender identity, sexuality, beauty, relationships, motherhood or the simple politics of everyday life. Rosso uses her emotions in portraying vivid colours, textures and the creation of complex scenes with an extensive use of symbols, drawn from both contemporary urban folklore and more ancient cultural heritage. Deeply fascinated by classicism, Rosso attempts to emulate a contemporary version of realism that is still rooted in the traditional artistic techniques and methods. Painting mainly with oil, she adapts her process according to her thematic subjects and her mood, varying from a quick energetic and spontaneous "alla prima" painting style, to more carefully planned and laid out compositions which are built in layers over time.

Born in Sicily (1978), Rosso moved to London in 2004 to finish her academic studies in politics and international relations. After a brief career in marketing and advertising, Rosso rediscovered her very first love for fine arts. Primarily self-taught, she trained briefly at the Prince Drawing School and at LARA (London Atelier of Representational Art) in London and has been painting fulltime since 2016. She won the “Emerald Winter Pride Art Award” in 2016 and “The Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize 2017”. In 2018, Rosso was selected for “Sky Portrait Artist of The Year 2019”. Her work has been displayed mainly across London such as at Mall Galleries, Bloomsbury, The Strand Gallery and has been featured in a few international fine art magazines (The Guide Artists, Anuario de Arte Figurativa).
