ROSIE THOMAS

VISUAL ARTIST

Tell us about yourself: 

I’m twenty-three years old and Sydney based (I lived in Canberra for the past three years completing a Bachelor of Visual Art.)

About: Rosie Eliza, 23, lives and works on the unceded lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation 

 

Practice/process/mediums: Rosie Eliza is an artist whose work responds to an accumulated personal archive of written texts, images, and embodied memories. Their work employs the sensory and linguistic capacities of mundane phenomena to produce text-based, photographic, and sculptural installations and performances. The artist wills reconfigure and reimagine words and associations. The resulting projects are born out of curiosity and playfulness towards an imaginative reconfiguration of formal associations. Seemingly distant entities are gathered and compressed to practice their own reason. Rosie Eliza currently works and lives on unceded Gadigal land.

 

What do you plan to do in the future?:

Look towards more socially engaged art projects, make films and develop my sculptural practice. 

 

Who inspires you and your work?:

Everyday encounters, overheard conversations, phrases in texts, peers I studied with at art school.  ....I can give you specific artists if you like to...
