Lot 347 - Rosalind Hobley - Gardenia I
Cyanotype on Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Rosalind Hobley is an artist living and working in London. She originally trained as a figurative sculptor, and for her portraits and still lifes she works with studio lighting to define shape and form.
She uses the early 19th Century technique of Cyanotype because it allows an extra layer of unpredictability. Brushstrokes, blur and loss of definition are all part of the process. The details recede, and the shape and mass of the subjects enhanced. Her subjects become sculptural and mysterious, floating in the blue.
BA Hons in Fine Art Sculpture from Maidstone College of Art.
Recipient of the Create Church St Grant; LCN Scholarship; awarded first place in the Alternative Processes Series of the 16th Julia Margaret Cameron Award, and an Honourable Mention in the Portrait Series.
