As if lifted by a breeze, oversized ribbons and bundles of fabric float over the trompe l’oeil murals by the London-based artist Rosie Woods. The shiny, prismatic textiles sway and twist in the spray-painted works in a subtle way in folds and waves. Through the fluid movements, Woods explores the fluid, ever-changing nature of human experience by synthesizing abstraction and realism. She explains:
I often wonder what my soul would look like if it manifested as an object that I could see and touch on this earth. My work of art today aims to express the depth, growth and complexity of the mind and its ability to emotionally capture both light and dark spaces. I would like to believe that you can “feel” my work of art with your eyes.
Woods translates her massive, glossy textiles into smaller canvases in which she sells her shop. Although it is currently sold out, you can expect upcoming releases on the eighth Instagramwhere she shares a variety of process recordings and news about where she is going next.
