Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"At times, my pieces evolve to an unexpected closure where I'm not quite sure how it happened or how it got there; that’s the intuitive creative power at work I guess."
-- Rose M Barron
Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"My intention is for people to enjoy looking at the work, to sense the beauty in it. And upon taking a deeper look, to feel a connection to my work, whether that be to their own identity or someone close to them, as well as to open up an awareness and sensibility of our existence and our place in the world."
-- Rose M Barron
Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"Probably the most entertaining stories are within the collaborative work I stage and photograph when I work with other artists whom are very creative humans; words, actions and rawness comes out!! It's quite fun."
-- Rose M Barron
Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"I actually love all materials but if I have to pick a least favorite, I would say metals because I’m not familiar with it. It is such a specialty and I admire those who work with it."

Q&A

What makes a space special?

"This space varies so much but I find it is best in an authentic space where others, such as gallery owners or curators, know me and my work and can elaborate upon it when I am not there. ."
-- Rose M Barron
Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"My inspirations often come from nature, my identity as a woman (and how that fits in with our culture), past life and our connection to the world. I love experimenting with different disciplines of art. I use inspiration, sketches, and notes when creating, but throughout the process, I allow pieces to evolve on their own and it becomes a dance if you will. If a piece changes from my original idea, I welcome it as I believe the artworks have a voice of their own. I am a multi-media artist who refuses to stay in her box of titles."
