Memory is still-life art in the making – the concept at the heart of Rosanne’s Barr’s work. In a word, flashback.

Rosanne explores and captures the mood, emotion, colours of a place, a landscape filtered through the sands of lapsed time.

These are imagined places – her Lands of Escape – but based on direct experience of the Atlantic seaboard of North West Scotland and Orkney Orkney; real landscapes of hill-top, ocean and immense, free sky. This she still visits with her young family.

Heightened colours of sunrise, sunset, amidst calm and storm; simplified shape and blending lines are the basis of her distinctive abstract style.
