Natalia Rose challenges the conventional separation between the realm of memory and the realm of experience. Exploring dimensionality through layers of color, her compositions radiate power and command attention as her paintings navigate themes of identity, exoticism and culture and the idea of the stranger.

“My paintings do not depict things which I actually observe, but rather what I recall from the past, and more accurately, what I wish to see."

Drawing from historical and cultural imagery, Ms. Rose weaves a map of identity that intermingles Eastern and Western ideals of beauty, as well as mythologies. Ms. Rose's primary interest is in pictorial phenomena: the illusion of a three-dimensional space, composition, and the optical effects of color. Believing that color stimulates a conversation between tone and texture, between motion and shape, Ms. Rose's rainbow-hued palette dances on the canvas as she transcribes life's events through hue, shape, and motion. Passionate color and vibrant texture are parlayed into chimeric, non-figurative compositions which metamorphose into a visual dialogue of dazzling color and line.  Brilliant and emotive, Ms. Rose translates onto the canvas with a syncopated beat the magnificence of our world.
