Rosie has created two new editions of hand-painted screen prints featuring sirens of the silver screen Greta Garbo and Ava Gardner.
"My studio has always been my sanctuary, and at the start of 2021, I wanted to retreat away from the realities of the global pandemic, and play with iridescent inks, shiny powders and work with some beautiful images. Throughout most of 2020 I was unable to create my own photo shoots, so have been delving into the archives of Hollywood to create two brand new prints featuring these glamorous screen icons.
I have always been drawn to these beautiful black and white studio portraits, the lighting is masterful and they possess a softness which comes from shooting on real film.
I love playing on this softness, going against the grain of the often sharp graphic block colour aesthetic of screen print, and instead enhancing the soft, graininess akin to old newspaper print, with charcoal, bronze powders and paint - it is often unpredictable, but as each print is different it is an extremely gratifying process" - Rosie Emerson
