Kay Rosen Biography

Rosen has been exploring the possibilities of words as images for over 25 years. She delights in the small shift; the subtle change that subverts meaning and reveals the unexpected. In her paintings, drawings, wall works, collages and editions she has used varied visual, grammatical, and typographical strategies to challenge the way people see and understand the words they read. For someone whose ammunition is the painted word she is also a very visual artist, using colour to articulate her ideas in a way that is often humorous, sometimes shocking, and frequently profound.

Recent solo exhibitions include Map of the World, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, and On the Wall, Monique Meloche Gallery, Chicago, both in 2014.
