About The Metaphysical

Rosie Thompson Mixed Media Artist

Rosie Thompson Mixed Media Artist

Rosie Thompson, has been recognized as a mixed media artist who has transitioned over the years from cast metal anthropomorphic  forms, sewn vacated humanoid forms (implanted with electronics), sewn colorful transparent forms, and  large scale shamanistic installations (site and context specific) and constructions which she continues today. Her mixed media work involves contrasting materials that she uses as metaphors for her mixed ancestries, cultural traditions, and contrasting energies therein. The form that emerges charges the metaphysical field in a Shamanistic manner.

Rosie notes, “The content in my work deals with the balancing of contrasting energies, such as sensory/extra sensory, and concrete/ephemeral to arrive at a harmonious equilibrium. The process involves using mixed media materials that are metaphors for my mixed contrasting ancestries, cultural traditions, and metaphysical explorations. The form in my work changes from year to year. But the iconography developed in time has become a language of fusion that celebrates the “oneness” of the personal and universal in our human experience.”
