Marisol Rosas’ large digital works, printed on canvas, reflect this artist’s enduring interest in animation. By manipulating her images she reflects in them the magical essence of life, imbuing them with a lively sense of joy and energy that both appeals and invigorates.

Whatever techniques she employs, the resultant artworks are laden with depth, color and movement, so that the final product is a balanced, vital and robust statement, full of emotion, intention and ideas.
Rosas’ works have a psychedelic feel to them, reminiscent of graphic art from the seventies. Her palette is varied, as are the forms she chooses to employ, meaning that she is well placed to produce works that focus on varied subjects, reflecting the diversity of the world and of human understanding. Ultimately, these creations both celebrate and encourage us to appreciate the world in which we live and the power of our imaginations.
