ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rose Magee (b. 1990, Uk), explores culture - nature - dualism through the mediums of oil painting and sustainable sculpture. Her work has been shown internationally in independent galleries in Malta, Berlin and Montenegro as well as pop up exhibitions in Bonn and London. In 2020 and again in 2021 she collaborated with her local Jewish community creating public sculpture focused on Jewish visibility. Formally trained in restoration and the art of tattooing, Rose lives and works in Berlin. Her current objective is to show how important it is, now more than ever, to live in harmony with our environment, less exploitation and more integration.
Rose Magee is an independent artist based in Berlin. She specializes in contemporary and sustainable art, oil paintings, sculptures and installations. She is considered to be an emerging painter and sculpture artist in the Berlin art scene.
My eyes are drawn to contrasts, dramatic lighting and the atmosphere created by colours. In the past year I have tried to be more conscious of climate change as a subject matter and practising better consumption by using repurposed materials. My work is mainly concentrated in painting and sculpture with influences of the art movements from the first half of the 20th century. The aim is not to produce a direct translation of reality but rather an impression of it, pure and ready for interpretation. I am passionate about creating space for dialogue around difficult topics such as mental health issues, climate change and antisemitism. Creating art that allows for healthy discussions, awareness without preaching and learning through exchange of ideas is my current goal.
