Rose Davies / Rosie Scribblah
Rose Davies aka Rosie Scribblah
Graduating from Art College at the end of the 70’s, I survived punk, post-modernism and the rise of Thatcherism with my belief in traditional art values and particularly drawing, intact. Like many other struggling young artists at that time, I developed a secondary career working with the homeless and drug dependent people. My work with the excluded has influenced me deeply and reflects my admiration for the beauty and resilience of the human body, existing within the often harsh conditions of the modern city.
Specialising in drawing and printmaking, a sketchbook is my constant companion and I blog a drawing daily. In printmaking I focus on block (relief) printing in lino, wood and polythene sheet; monotypes, full-colour and monochrome; and etching, using photopolymer and drypoint.
Almost all my work is derived from life, whether standing in the street doing speed sketches or working with professional life-drawing models. My real-life, real-time experience of drawing inspires me to develop drawing installations and original prints.
