It's almost impossible to envision a world without men or even the absence of male dominance in the society, however the art of Rosso Emerald Crimson is far from being stereotypical. Every canvas is a place where women rule, marriage doesn't exist and everything follows the maternal bloodline.

Scattered childhood memories, self-portraiture reflections, various metaphors and a subtle irony that breaks all taboos of sexuality and beauty as we know it. She uses mainly oils, mixed media and occasionally collage to create her engaging content.

This artist stimulates all classic aspects of reality and reverses ultimately our perception of freedom.
Curated by Kelly Kaimaki, Creative Writer / Curator


Rosso uses portraiture and self-portraiture to explore herself and the world around. By use of metaphors and subtle irony, the artist unveils the strenght and vulnerability of the human condition. Her work is populated by predominantly female characters with a strong sense of physicality who interact with the viewers at various levels of the subconscious. Although not explicitily, racial injustice, gender inequality and environmental issues are often catalysts of the artist's work.

Deeply inspired by classicism and painting mainly in oils, Rosso adopts a version of realism that combines abstract expressionism, mixed media and occasionally collage to create aesthetically engaging content.
