Becky Rose is a contemporary landscape artist based in the South of the UK. In 2007 she graduated with a BA in Fine Art from University College Falmouth and has had various group shows along the South Coast and Wales. Becky has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the National Open Art where she has also been an Artist In Residence. 

 

Becky's work explores the relationship between the natural beauty of mountainous landscapes with all its weather extremes, and the emotional connection of memory that is bestowed upon them. It is within the mountains that Becky finds her fortress of solitude and harbours a re-connection from what has been lost.Exploring the magnitude of these natural environments takes Becky on many adventures in the mountains, gathering evidence into her sketchbooks of both an ever changing composition and her emotional responses to the experience.

 

In her paintings there is always a sense of a wild place in all its elements, but there is always an undertone feeling of separation and distance, creating both familiarity and intrigue into the unknown.

When working on her paintings in the studio, the field studies and notes are put to one side, allowing her memory to be a primary source. This way of working allows Becky's paintings to grow organically and natural like the main focus of her subject matter, thus creating ephemeral qualities and feelings of memory rather than representation.

The fascination of the wild elements of the natural world were imbedded into Becky at a young age, with yearly trips into the mountains of North Wales, that were filled with plenty of adventure and possibilities. The mountains have now become a second home, providing her with clarity and endless inspiration,
