To The Ground; a solo exhibition by artist Rosanne Robertson - winner of an AIR Gallery Platform Bursary award sponsored by Arts Council England.
Conscious and unconscious explorations of the idea of Ground are presented via representational and abstract forms. Connections within the material and immaterial mind are extended via appendages and crutches which connect us psychologically and physically to the ground. Moments that are rooted and up rooted exist at the same time celebrating constant flux- joined together and exposed in opposition to the idea of an opaque and rigid dominant structure.
Female form is handled by the female hands, instincts and gaze of the artist- reclaiming power taken away by an overarching patriarchal and homophobic society that fears true exploration of female power and sexuality.
