CHURCH LANE  GALLERY
Rosy Burke, Artist

Rosy Burke comes from an award winning background as a graphic designer, illustrator and photographer. For the last few years she has been painting many subjects and commissions but her favourite subject is heavy horses and farm animals. She has also focused on nature and flowers with occasional vegetables thrown in. She says “The pleasure is in the doing - splashing around with paint - pushing and pulling it about until you reach something you can be pleased with.” Lately she has been experimenting with laying and overlaying colours to achieve what she thinks are magical unexpected effects and painting undersea paintings. 

 

Rosy was a winner of the BBC Countryfile Photographic Competition 2005 Judges Prize, and was a Long-Listing Judge for the Calendar for 9 years. She is also a past winner of Best Small Business in Banbury.

'UP THE CREEK' – acrylics on canvas, 20" deep x 18" wide. "In the creek the water rises and falls with the tides. The mud and seaweeds try to reclaim anything in their grasp. This little dingy fascinated me as every year it got more and more dilapidated and sad surrounded by bigger shiny painted well-loved boats. Each year it was neglected it became more and more interesting to paint so here it is - preserved for the future . . . " – Rosy Burke £125

'LUNCHTIME' – a linoprint in two colours. "It shows one of my favourite subjects – sheep! I paint from my original photographs – this was a smiley one at Warriner School Farm quite a few years ago. It was loving the clean straw in the barn on special display for the visitors and surrounded by lambs in spring" – Rosy Burke £75
