    About the work

    Rosaleen was one of a team of athletes who travelled to Singapore in 2013 for the Special Olympics. She competed in the golf competition. The tall buildings made a big impression on her! Rosaleen works from memory and imagination, recreating built environments that may combine interiors and exteriors simultaneously, or may lie all the buildings flat to accommodate a park.


    Artist Bio

    Rosaleen is inspired by her home city of Cork. After walking through the city, examining the buildings and seeking out things to paint, she returns to studio and composes her pieces from memory. Experimenting with colour mixing is a very important part of Rosaleen’s process. She makes cities look like a magical place, enhancing them with vibrant colours and the additional details from her imagination. Her composition and placement of elements is unique, buildings can be turned inside out, and people can float on land or in the sky creating beautiful composition.
