About the paintings
In her surrealistic work, flowers are mostly the subject that Rosa uses to represent
aspect of life, death, feelings and emotions. She plays with natures forms by sometimes
exchanging the petals for bones to form the flowers.
I am fascinated by the possibilities that I find when I paint in a surrealistic style.
It is creating my own world where my feelings are transferred to my favorite subject, the flower.
