Here at Print Club London HQ we were inundated with hundreds of submissions all themed around BOOKS! Collectively the team chose just 50 of the most impressive pieces to print and exhibit at Blisters: The Paperback Edition. All the pieces featured in the show have a close connection with the artists, they created based on their favourite childhood book, quotes or even favourite author! Blisters is a platform to give the artists and even playing field, young emerging talent exhibiting alongside established artists and illustrators such as Rob Ryan and Chris Haughton.

‘Inspired by Angela Carters book ‘A Night at the Circus’ a magical realist book following the story of a trapeze artist who is half woman half swan. The model was photographed on her trapeze in the artist’s studio. The print was hand printed by the artist and has a very special sparkly layer of silver foiling.’ – Rosie Emerson

‘She was feeling supernatural tonight. She wanted to eat diamonds.’ – A Night at the Circus

Rosie Emerson

Rosie’s figures draw reference from archetype’s old and new, from Artemis to the modern day super model. Unrestrained in her technique she uses costume, intricate props, dramatic lighting, and playful collage to elevate her subjects to otherworldly, goddess like status. Staged without context or background, her subjects are objectified, adorned and manipulated, becoming an allegory of Emerson’s own fantasy.

‘My painting style is quite visceral and loose, by combining it with collage and photography it allows me to balance energy and precision, and create something, which despite hours of planning will still surprise me in its results.’

 Rosie Emerson, Culture Label interview 2012

 Her screen prints using natural materials, such as ash, sawdust and charcoal shift the focus of printmaking from precision and replication to creating unique, hand-finished prints with subtle texture. In 2012, Will Ramsey, founder of The Affordable Art Fair deemed her work ‘Beautiful, highly original and certainly collectable’ The Sunday Times Style Magazine.

Rosie has exhibited widely in the UK, as well, Europe, LA, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dallas. Rosie has also worked with Sony, Triumph Underwear, Redbull, P&O Cruises, Toms, and Jewelry designer Annoushka Ducas. Her unique collage style as led to her work being featured in the likes of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Another Magazine, The Financial Times Magazine, and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.

Rosie currently lives and works in East London.
