SHOP

This online shop allows you to purchase original works and prints from visual contemporary artist Rosanne Robertson.

Rosanne Robertson is an artist based in the UK with a studio base in Hebden Bridge (West Yorkshire). Working with drawing, assemblage, performance and sound she explores tensions, anxieties and relationships between body, object and environment. Personal themes of sexuality, gender, class and mental health intersect- overlapping and layering with each part dependent on the other. Lesbianism, Queerness, disruption and the construction of self are main concerns explored via the body in opposition to inhumane dominant structures.

Described by Dazed and Confused when selected by Doodlebug as one of the city’s ‘Emerging Ones’ as “working beneath the skin by any means possible”.

Rosanne Robertson is director of Dyke|Queer contemporary art project The Penthouse (Manchester/Salford). www.thepenthousenq.com
