Where the interaction with the materials becomes the subject. Mostly prints, but also ceramic and plastic, this exhibition forms part of a varied practice. These artworks are conceived within a framework of levels of systemic theory (described in communication theory, anthropology and family therapy). The artist attempted to make these works with the greatest influence being an internal one, with the primary relationship being with the material. Rosy has training in psychiatry, family therapy and art and has lived in Britain, Iraq and Zambia.
