About the Work

Patrice Rose describes herself as an 'Afro-Visual Artist' that creates Silkscreen Textile PaintingsHer practice combines delicate hand drawings and silk screen printing onto fibre.

Inspired by narratives of identity and politics in contemporary society, she seeks to explore these themes by inviting the viewer to inspect and engage with her photographic quality tactile artworks. The artist's background in Tailoring has helped inform her practise by using textiles as part of her working medium and focusing on the body form within her work. The use of black portraiture and a focus on the female subject within her textile paintings acts as a symbolic mechanism to her identity and rich cultural history. The use of printed fabrics and textiles synonymous with her Caribbean culture, while it is also used to capture the mood of each piece.
