In a new series of etchings, monoprints, and sculptural works, Rose explores what a deep connection to nature looks and feels like. The work, mainly comprised of depictions of the human figure enveloped in plants and other instinctive flora, is vibrant and often playful.

Most of the work in NATURAL CONNECTIONS has been made in Pyramid’s studios over the past 12 months. Of the show, Rose says “people feel most moved to help once they have created a meaningful connection to a person, place or thing. I believe the stronger bond we can build with the natural world that sustains us, one grounded in true compassion and empathy, the more we will feel moved to protect it. This show is inspired by a journey of reconnection to people, and to the land - seeking to draw the lines that truly link us all.”
