Elders Series #1 (2010) - Roselyn Cloake
Roselyn's series of paintings have been inspired by the cubist movement and in particular Juan Gris, who showed a 3D world as if looking though the facets of a crystal glass. This approach offered Roselyn the freedom to express herself and put her own interpretation on realistic situations and objects which have personal meaning.
The series unites her parent's different cultural backgrounds to show where she has come from. Her mother is symbolised in windmills and the iconic flat Dutch landscape. Her father is iconised by the sunrise and rolling hills round Fairview , which appear on his father's “Cloake's Honey” tin. Part of her interpretation is the use of her father's cartooning techniques to portray movement and time. By incorporating this fourth dimension, she has developed her own unique painting style.
“Whether you like to purchase art for the beauty of the piece itself or to blend in well with your decor, art is something that is very personal. I would like to help you make a statement about your personality and provide a piece that is an investment in your collection.” - Roselyn Cloake
