Rosy Keyser

°1974, Baltimore (US) – lives and works in New York (US)

Through her work Rosy Keyser invites the viewer to think about the intersections between people and the matter that surround them. Whilst strolling through rural American settings, Keyser manifests forceful transformations on the objects and industrial supplies she recovers there. Working in an instinctive way, she moulds, tears, damages and deconstructs the natural qualities of these materials to expose previously unseen fragilities. The resulting altered forms become compositions, whereof each component carries indelible traces of both Keyser's actions and its elusive past life. Thus each painting, large in scale and inevitable tactile, offers expressions beyond the formality of language and seeks to inspire a bodily resonance concerning the meaning to inhabit a material world.

Rosy Keyser has had solo exhibitions at Karma, New York; Peter Blum Gallery, New York; and Maccarone, New York. Her work has been included in several international group shows at venues such as Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; Ballroom Marfa, Texas; Peter Blum Chelsea, New York; and Hauser and Wirth, New York.

Her work is part of permanent collections such as the Louisiana Museum, Humlebæk; the Zabludowicz Collection, London; The Portland Museum of Art, Portland; and the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation, Bloomfield Hills.
