Moved 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. 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. In this peice a strong windmill stands in the open space and makes the most of the wind that flows through her.
