Rose Dickson

Rose Dickson’s paintings examine essential relationships through the interactions of archetypal forms—exploring touch, unity, boundary, overlap, tension and violence as moments of intersection. The artist’s work explores the sympathetic vibrations that move across all things, bringing to mind Shaker gift drawings, illuminated manuscripts, Islamic tiling and Celtic knots. Dickson’s compositions network shapes into a cosmology, where pattern is the key to understanding how all things are necessarily touching.
