Samantha Rosenwald uses colored pencils to create meticulous and darkly humorous paintings. Her poignant images touch on topics of female identity, art history and consumerism. Rosenwald’s practice draws from her childhood anxieties over mass media beauty expectations to explore the complexities and volatility of the female experience.
