In a new series of etchings, monoprints, and sculptural works, Rose Jaffe explores what a deep connection to nature looks and feels like. The work, mainly comprised of depictions of the human figure enveloped in plants and other instinctive flora, is vibrant and often playful. Most of the exhibited pieces have been made at Pyramid Atlantic over the past year.
Rose is a visual artist, with mediums spanning mural painting, ceramics, printmaking, and digital illustration. Born and raised in DC, Rose earned her BFA at the School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan and has pursued an art career full time after teaching middle and high school art. Rose has painted over 30 murals nationally and internationally, including over 20 in the District. Her art has been featured in over fifteen publications, including The Washington Post and City Paper as well as NBC, CNN, and Channel 9 among others. The themes of her work include political activism, social justice, natural healing, and spiritual grounding. She is dedicated to harnessing the power of art to find connections, build community, spark conversation and create social change.
