Rose Vickers


Biography

Rose works mainly using found and carefully collected materials, re appropriating commonplace objects by responding to their innate narrative qualities.

 

Sometimes inspired by simple geometry, the work can be suggestive of the tradition of piecing patchwork quilts and the necessity of using materials that were to hand and could not be wasted, and in so creating something which could act as a narrative document of their makers lives.

 

Employing a handmade aesthetic, Rose’s latest work is created using her large collection of school rulers and yardsticks, subtly evoking an earlier utopianism whilst celebrating the everyday usefulness of the simplest of tools.

 

Since completing her degree in Applied Arts she has exhibited widely and has worked on a broad range of public and private commissions.

 

Rose currently lives and works in Bristol.
