About the Artist
Rose O'Gallivan is a graduate of the Royal College of Art.
"One to watch" Britart's new wave: Who are the successors to Hirst and Emin? - Independent
O'Gallivan, a print-making student, works in a place in which fabric, sculpture, print and paper meet. Her work includes a large sheet of purple iridescent paper that has been folded into a grid formation, then unfolded; the lines, cracks and breaks now visible as sculptural cuts and bends. Her screen-prints include imagery of fabrics draping and covering, sometimes doubled up. One beautifully tinted image of a pinned-up fabric sheet is pinned up on a bigger image of the same pinned-up sheet, pinned to the wall, leaving you wanting to peel back the layers.
About the Collection
From the collection Folio, created in response to works by Shakespeare by Royal College of Art Printmaking students, staff and invited artists to celebrate the Royal Shakespeare Company’s fiftieth birthday. These prints were originally displayed during a celebrated exhibition by the same name in 2011. The prints reflect the act of performing and making theatre, and how the works of Shakespeare are researched and received by a generation fluent in digital media. All proceeds from sales go towards supporting future students at the Royal College of Art.
