Bring on the Clowns
Rosa Sepple PRI SWA| Mixed Media | 30 x 22 inches
Rosa Sepple is a self-taught artist, starting her painting career in the late 1990’s. She is renown for her striking mixed-media paintings that are based on watercolour and collage.
She is now fully occupied as a painter committed to producing exciting, vibrant and highly original figurative works combining observation, memory and imagination. Rosa’s compositions have a powerful visual strength and refreshing spontaneity. She experiments continuously using a combination of mediums including water colour, acrylic, gouache and ink as well as collage to produce beautiful textured surfaces and rich variations of colour and tone.
Most of her inspiration is drawn from ordinary people and everyday experiences and events. These are then transformed and transported into a dream-like world of her own.
Above all else, Rosa Sepple’s unique style brings a whimsical feel to her paintings. People appear to float or fly in her work and architecture leans or topples in magical directions to compliment a composition. Pushing artistic boundaries at every possible opportunity, Rosa Sepple’s sense of adventure, colour and spirit continually shines out.
Rosa Sepple was elected President of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in January 2017… an accolade never awarded to a female member of the Institute before.
“This painting is inspired by the song ‘Send in the Clowns’ By Frank Sinatra:
‘Isn’t it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground
You in mid-air
Send in the clowns…’
A song with an essence of fantasy and a touch of magic.” Rosa
