Isabella Rose’s solo exhibition is a snapshot of her long-term project featuring mixed media collages inside suitcases interpreting personal interviews. This series features the life stories of three immigrants. She received a SEMAC Emerging Artist grant for this project.
SEMAC Capstone Event: Friday August 2, 6:30 pm
Rose’s art explores what makes people who they are, the parts we hide and the parts we share. The parts of people that seem inconsequential interest her, the parts that are not perfect or pretty, but add up to make them whole. Through her art she wants to share these facets of people unprocessed and raw. Her desire is to create unease by revealing the beauty in the imperfect and broken. She hopes this unease leads to reflection, connection, and empathy.
Isabella Rose was born and raised in Northfield, MN and graduated from the Northfield ALC in 2018. She has worked with numerous Minnesota artists in Northfield and the Twin Cities and currently lives in St Paul. She will be attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the fall.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
