Shifting light, grand scale and west coast hues are hallmarks of Rose's current work. Her paintings explore the wonder and quiet iconography of Victoria. The sea at the Dallas Road waterfront is where so many of us Victorians feel home. The sky flickers and changes, the water swells and moves with every passing second, no moment is ever repeated. She roams there during the magic hour, in the silence of snow, during downpours and storms to get photos for new work.
"I bathe in the subtle hues of our skies and West Coast colours. Victoria, Vancouver Island is home."
