Portrait of an Artist~Doris Rose

Artfest Toronto at the Distillery Fine Art Show Aug 30-September 2

Doris Rose's Words:

My main interest is in figurative painting, exploring human nature, and celebrating personalities through moments of introspection or pause.  

There are no barriers when the imaginative process speaks to the inner self of others.  Inspired by contemporary figurative painters and post-impressionist artists, I work to create dynamic painterly marks which can be viewed abstractly.  I choose over-saturated colour and heightened mark-making to reflect the mood or the turbulence that lies behind the surface, in the thoughts of the figure.  My works are oil paint, acrylic and ink on canvas and depict people in moments of introspective thought.
