The model featured in Paradiso was photographed by Emerson in the artists studio and then combined with the palm leaves and
flowers which were also taken from photographs she took. The prints are all hand painted and then screen printed by the artist in
Brighton using a technique she has pioneered using charcoal and pink and gold bronze powders, which give the image a softness
and ephemeral quality. The charcoal powder adds a subtle texture and the bronze powder adds some sparkle too.
Rosie Emerson is an award winning contemporary artist from the Dorset, working almost exclusively on representing the female form. Emerson’s figures draw reference from archetypes old and new from Artemis to the modern day super
model. Inspired by her love of museums, architecture, theatre, silhouettes, shrines and rituals, she uses dramatic lighting, hand made costumes, set and prop making alongside printmaking and painting to create genre defying prints. Her Screen-prints
are delicately embellished with bronze powders and more unusual materials including charcoal powder, ash and saw dust. These textural prints shift the focus of printmaking from precision and replication to the creation of unique, hand-finished
prints.
Career highlights include being Artist in residence at Somerset House, Exhibitions at the RWA, Bristol and the Southbank Centre. A Finalist for the Young Masters Prize and shortlisted for the Rise Art Print Award, Emerson was also commissioned by Hackney WickED Arts Festival to create a new Guinness World record and create the world’s largest Cyanotype photograph.
Her work is widely collected and exhibited both in the UK, as well as internationally, through galleries, art fairs and museums. She has also been commissioned by brands including Sony, Triumph Underwear, Redbull, P&O Cruises, Toms, and
Annoushka jewelry working with models Amber le Bon, Daisy Lowe and singer Eliza Doolittle. Her work has also been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Another Magazine, The Financial Times Magazine and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.

Rosie Emerson is an award winning contemporary artist from the Dorset, working almost exclusively on representing the female form. Emerson’s figures draw reference from archetypes old and new from Artemis to the modern day super model. Inspired by her love of museums, architecture, theatre, silhouettes, shrines and rituals, she uses dramatic lighting, hand made costumes, set and prop making alongside printmaking and painting to create genre defying prints. Models are photographed in her studio she then uses numerous different print techniques. Her Screen-prints are delicately embellished with bronze powders and more unusual materials including charcoal powder, ash and saw dust. These textural prints shift the focus of printmaking from precision and replication to the creation of unique, hand-finished prints. Her Cyanotype works enable her use UV light from the sun to expose objects and large scale photographic negatives directly on to the paper which has been coated with a light sensitive emulsion. Once dried, the works are often hand painted or gilded with gold leaf. Emerson describes ‘the technique itself has an element of magic about it, it is wonderful to be able to combine painting, collage and photography in this way’’. Emerson’s current Photopolymer etchings continue to push printmaking in new directions, her monochrome portraits are delicately embossed with unusual materials; salt, netting, hair and cellophane. Her hand build theatre Marquette’s, play with scale and create ornate surrounds to her subjects. Her works almost always echo previous eras and sometimes from other worlds entirely.
