Rosie Gilligan (British, b. 1988) is a self-taught Contemporary artist whose paintings are characterised by simplified form, shallow depth of field and a playful manipulation of scale.
The subjects of her work often act as a visual diary, portraying ubiquitous objects, familiar landscapes and emotive form that comprise the fabric of everyday life. In reducing the three-dimensional world around her to an altered state of graphic simplicity, she embraces both figuration and abstraction and strives to combat the chaos of modern existence.
Her flattened and brightly coloured compositions display the influence of artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and Henri Matisse, and have featured in group exhibitions and art fairs in Miami, London and Melbourne.
