Description  
In speaking about her paintings, Rosie Sanders states: “It is the form, colour and, sometimes, patterns contained in the plants which attract me. I like the strength and at the same time the vulnerability of the Calla Lilies, with the sensuous nature of the flowers drawing you in to the dark and velvety interior. They appear to me to have an almost anthropomorphic quality.” Rosie Sanders paints onto a very heavy, rough watercolour paper; not in the traditional way of the water-colourist but by applying a good amount of quite dry and strong paint, often with a flat hog-hair brush. Inspired by the minimal style of Rory McEwan and the sensuous floral paintings of Geogia O’Keeffe, her paintings are about five feet in width and the flowers she depicts are shown about fifteen times life size. Having once painted miniatures, she finds this new size and scale both challenging and exciting and believes that her larger paintings are best viewed from a distance in order to experience the full impact and power of the plants she depicts.
