Sara Rossi’s work operates as the residue of thoughts-and-memories, much like a photograph of a mental process or a meditation that has been transferred through the hand onto canvas. By employing simplified organic shapes and forms, she challenges the viewer's rational comprehension, and instils her works with a transcendental dimension, aided by the use of surreal golden surfaces. The resulting images are elemental – remaining open to interpretation.
