Descrizione Opera / Biografia
The Unpainted Woman:
Part Fantastic Voyage, part celebration of my younger self, this is a finely crafted jewel in which I am looking for those who are not immune to splendor.
Reality is both harsh and wondrous. I am trying to circumvent it all.
Kathy Rose’s work has evolved from her early drawn animated films of the 1970’s, through her unique, pioneering performance work combining dance with film in the 1980-90’s, to her current surreal performance video spectacles and videos, with influence from symbolist art and the Japanese Noh theater.
