NYC based artist: painter, animator, and writer
Trained as a traditional oil painter, Kathryn Rose paints photorealistic portraits with a whimsical twist. She is a graduate of Parsons: The New School of Design in NYC and is a full time painter based in Brooklyn. Throughout all of her pieces scale is used as a way to stretch the limits of imagination and to put emphasis on certain ideas or themes. The often barely visible things in her works are where the stories and commentary are hidden. She paints with the smallest brushes available, while wearing jeweler’s glasses. Each painting displays a central figure that acts as a theatre for tiny painted people to perform stories. Typically beside each piece a magnifying glass is hung in order see the minutely painted details.
