Artist's Statement
I was inspired to create my current Assemblages by a desire to honor the histories and myths about women. As I continued to study this theme, I became intrigued with the lives of female artists who had died before their full potential was realized. The "Popova" group of boxes is an example of this interest.
I gather articles and ideas for my mixed media works during my foreign travels, visits to flea markets, and by collecting the castoffs of friends and relatives.
When I start working on a new idea, I am usually inspired by the shape and size of the box itself as well as a theme suggested by mythology or lore. Although I concentrate on the lives of goddesses and women of the past, the finished assemblage usually suggests details of my own history.
After many years of experience with traditional forms of printmaking, I find the medium of computer art intriguing. The original images used for my digital art include slides, photographs, collage elements, hand painted elements, etc. Each image was scanned into the computer to be manipulated, color adjusted, and combined into a montage.

Roslyn Rose Creates Evocative Assemblages
REVIEW, February 14, 2003:

Roslyn Roses work is both
creative and imaginative. There is a
freshness in her photomontages,
combining her technical expertise as a
photographer and printmaker with her
rare eye for place and people, the past
and present to produce unique visual
images. Transfer and transformation
(the title of her one person show) are
the appropriate words to describe her
artistic process.

Roses original art shows her
mastery of sophisticated modern
technology-emulsion transfer and
digital printing-with the traditional
hands-on application processes. There
is more to her work than merely
pressing a key or scanning an image.
She does not let us forget the fact that
she is an artist first with an exceptional
eye and an important message. She is
very much of the present, constantly
exploring and discovering new tools to
express her creative vision of the world
around us.

What comes across in Roses
montages is a fearlessness and breadth.
A fearlessness to explore and
experiment with new digital tools
available to the artist today and using
them to redefine how a work of art is
conceived and executed, and a breadth
and sensitivity in her vision of the
world. Her visual landscapes are based
on transfer and transformation--
transferring her photographs on a new
surface; and therefore, transforming
them into a new conceptual vision of
our reality by bringing a new sense of
excitement and discovery.
