Rose Sellery

Inspired by the spoken word, American artist Rose Sellery reinterprets collected slang, derogatory words and worn, thoughtlessly sanctioned expressions to create pieces that explore the fragility of family dynamics, gender roles, complex social issues and the intricacies of our lives. She works in the materials essential to the piece; from metal to bone, cigarette butts to rose petals, fabric to photographs, creating humorous, thought provoking and occasionally disturbing three-dimensional objects and wearable art.
