Her paintings have been described as "works of a visionary". As a Neo-Surrealist, she managed to fascinate art collectors across the globe. Being a skeptical dreamer, she focuses on an explanation of biblical events from an angle of an individual, who is sensing a global change and finds a new spiritual way to the higher authority. She creates visions not of this world, where birth and destruction go hand in hand with contradiction and fantasy.
Rosana's primary focus is not the correctness of prospective, or the true likeness of objects. It is the message her paintings and drawings are meant to transmit. This is the reason why she never limits herself to the technique, handwriting, period style or colour scheme. She can paint like an old 17th century artist, or create absolutely modern artworks with accidental splashes and blobs. Sometimes she likes to paint surreal things in a very realistic manner and in reverse the real, often very technical objects, are made with quick dynamic spatula strokes.
The media she uses for her paintings are mostly canvas, acrylic, oil paints, synthetics, sands and plaster, varnishes and pencils. She likes modern vivid abstractions, but also chiaroscuro. Her paintings represent the Neo-Surrealist era, where she can utilize all of her skills at once.
Development, idols and mentors
Filling the world around her with images and shaping it to satisfy her gently narcissistic nature began at an early age. She painted 3D pictures at the age of 4, then had her first public appearances at the age of 6, drawing buildings in the town's square. By the age of 14 she has filled her home with paintings and sculptures. Having both very artistic parents, she has spent her childhood among the best of the Czech cultural and creative society including her mentors and teachers: Karel Žaluda, Jiří (Giorgio) Stejskal, Věra Boudníková-Špánová, David LLoyd, Jaroslav Domiter. She is mesmerized by the works of Cesar Santos, Steven DaLuz, Hieronymus Bosch, Salvador Dalí, Peter Paul Rubens and others.
Permanent life abroad since 1991 has offered a wide variety of possibilities where her style of creation has found fertile soil. The collection of her art can be found in private collections, but also in business and corporate premises in many EU countries.
It was in the UK that she managed to maintain a stable client base and at the same time develop her style with several new modern techniques and media. It was a 3D art, street art, graffiti and music production for British TV channels like Channel U, BBC Channel 4 and Lion TV, where she met her crowd in the creative heart of London. She had participated in exhibitions and opportunities for artistic production, as well as offers for creative positions in the music industry.
Workshops and success
The two main workshops are in the UK and the Czech Republic, where she stores the majority of her latest works due to the vast space in the recently restored 18th century countryside estate. She also participates in a variety of charity projects in Europe and also across the US, which has earnt her awards by City Councillors and the White House.
Her latest series called "REVELATIONS" offers a glimpse into her imagination of the future.
(By Edward Charles Marsh, London 2018)
I leave my coffee often unattended for hours,
fully submerged into the world in my eyes,
locked up in my room by my own need
to strip down outside influences & enjoy the silence.
The plain space where I am my own personal Jesus
and where I can experience the halo of my own past,
gives birth to a haze of moves and colours.
I am a little 15 again and the insticts of sweeping
brushes across the naked canvas never let me down.
Waiting for the night to fall, where I feel sacred.
