Terry Rose
American, b. 1939

Terry Rose is a painter whose works are the product of both careful planning and chance. His latest and best-known works are made using a wet-on-wet technique developed after arduous experimentation. Rose coats a surface with wet varnish, then drops in oils, inks, mirror pigments, and enamels, and lets the pigments react with the liquid medium. The chemical reactions create the final image on the work, which appears to be a collection of colors bleeding, blurring, expanding, or sliding around the work’s surface. Rose’s practice is influenced by eastern philosophies and spirituality—such as Buddhism, and the principle of wu wei (or “non-doing”) in Daoism—which is suggested in his works’ titles.
