About Cathy Rose

Cathy Rose explores ideas of transformation and rebirth in her fantastical, figurative porcelain sculptures. Rose’s material of choice lends her figures a sense of vulnerability and delicacy, also expressed in their meditative facial expressions and postures, and graceful, elongated limbs. The fragility of porcelain belies its sturdiness, a paradox that imbues her figures with a sense of strength. She situates them amidst rustic found objects, such as tree branches, or in wooden boats or atop wooden horses, animating them and suggesting a sense of narrative or psychological presence.
