rosie sanders in home territory

at the bowie gallery
54B High Street Totnes Devon TQ9 5SQ

This week ( Sept 22) a solo exhibition of work by botanical watercolourist Rosie Sanders will bring us into the Autumn months with real charisma and warmth. Regularly exhibiting with her London gallery for many years, Rosie decided that she would like a show closer to home – on the edge of Dartmoor, giving us all a chance to see some of the most charismatic watercolour painting we are likely to see.
Rosie is known for pushing the boundaries of botanical painting. She is often described as the world’s best painter of the world’s most famous fruit and has published several books including THE APPLE BOOK.
Her close-up paintings of flowers with their bold and saturated colours have a power and impact not usually associated with botanical watercolours. Her flowers frequently reveal an unexpected translucence and intricacy of pattern – her observation of form and colour gives the subject matter a razor sharp individuality.
This solo exhibition at the bowie gallery offers some stunning pieces, including a large oil – a relatively new medium for the painter, as well as a small selection of original artist’s monotype prints.
