Statement:

Rosie Reed Gold is interested in the landscape of the psychological; her work inhabits the margins bridging the conscious and subconscious, where the waking mind may catch a fleeting glimpse of the shadow self to engage in a dialogue, frequently without words - the moment where integration is possible.

Dedicated to asking questions about the notion of ‘self’ and ‘other’ and the dynamic between the two, she explores how living beings share time/space, physical mirroring and interactions.

Heavily influenced by her background in studying Philosophy and English at Cardiff University, she seeks to investigate the distance between thought and action,  environment and behaviour, inquiry and understanding.

 

about me // about you // about everyone // about the humdrum // about time // about not toeing the line // about the rising of the light // about hindsight // about face // about relative space // about now and then // about when // about lighting the fire, or putting it out // about surviving without // about self deception // about contradiction // about to realise // about unintentional disguise // about turn // about to learn

Current projects:

Assemblage - A series of drawings exploring what Deleuze names an 'image of thought' that apprehends multiplicities.

Attendant - An installation piece inspired by Samuel Beckett’s ‘Waiting For Godot’ to create an immersive atmosphere of being in limbo, depicting the physical weight, landscape and scale of waiting. Using repetitive writing, pieces include durational 2D drawings, video and sound.

Anemone at Sea - a series of mono prints using watercolour preserving memories of the present at the same time they are created.
