Rose Van Oyen

  • Artist’s Statement







    Ceramics are the focus of Rose's practice, and while she enjoys creating quirky and whimsical pieces related to her love of Alice in Wonderland, her other concerns revolve around the Australian landscape. Rose portrays the beauty of our natural Australian flora through mark making on clay vessels integrated with the ever shifting sculptural expressions of the landscape of our coastal environment. Rose is currently working towards her next exhibition. Her work can be viewed under AbbieRose Collections on Instagram and Facebook. She is represented by Red Hill Gallery in Brisbane. Her work can also be found at Tiny Tree Cafe (Coorparoo) and at the Woodford Community Art Group Gallery.

  • Biography

    Rose had an interest in arts and crafts, from an early age pushing herself to use a range of mediums. Besides ceramics she also enjoys mixed media collage which encompasses the eclectic use of fabric scraps, velvet flowers, dyed lace, trims and buttons to create whimsical pieces. Over the last several years ceramics have become the main focus of her practice. Rose holds a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts and Visual Culture.

  • Influences

    An ongoing theme in Rose's work is the exploration of the natural world, in particular coastal erosion. The ocean can be a beautiful and peaceful place, but also powerful and dangerous.
