Natalia Rose

“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."

Nature morte le bouquet violet, 2020 - Acrylic on canvas 90 x 70 x 2 cm

Natalia Rose is a Danish artist best known for her semi-abstract works which feature pictograph-like symbols painting with broad and heavy brushstrokes. The artist raises questions about the nature of communication and the way in which one can express abstract and conceptual ideas through colour and iconographic markings. For example, in her painting “I” (2016), the artist uses only essential strokes to spell out his name and create patterns of letters across the canvas.

Born in 1953 in Stavropol, Russia she studied at the Moscow State University and later at the University of Copenhagen. In 2014 the artist held her first exhibition in Copenhagen and since in New York, Paris, Amsterdam and London. Today, her works are held in the private collections across world, in Canada, Spain, Sweden among others. Natalia Rose lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
