About the Work

Patrice Rose describes herself as an 'Afro-Visual Artist' . She mainly works in a monochromatic palette layering charcoal, graphite and pencil on paper, including strokes of colour through pastel, gold foil or silkscreen printing her works on fibre.


Storytelling is important to the artist's practice taking inspiration from history, classical art, poetry and politics. Her work often explores themes of identity, mental health, gender and the intersectionality for black identities within these stories. She seeks to explore these themes by inviting the viewer to inspect and engage with her layered artworks.
