‘Rosalind Davis reveals herself to be a visionary artist of sensitivity and complexity. Her mixed media paintings of dystopian landscapes incorporate embroidery and floral-print textile they conjure up a claustrophobic world of the uncanny.’ In Rosalind Davis’ mixed media painting, one finds the power and presence of seemingly barren urban landscapes. Their historical, social and political backgrounds are sutured into architectural dimensions. Rosalind's stitches and brushstrokes repair and give substance, providing scaffolding to what lies beneath and within structural urban design. The environments she represents are but support structures, as the artist envisions the identities and the human experiences that animate the edifices.
