Rosie Michelle recieved her Bachelor of Art degree from Bethel University in 2011. She continues to create work ranging from installations to small material studies and drawings.
I am interested in arranging and manipulating objects of daily ritual so as to adjust thier purpose and function. Inherently, an object’s purpose or function is determined by it’s composition and the material of which it is made. In my work, I have altered and ritualized such materials as metal piping, sinks, reconstituted soap and wine in order to discover they’re abstract qualities involving daily human experience. I accomplish this through mold making, material studies, research and drawing.
