Seeing things in nature that we generally not notice, Bristol-based artist Rose Sanderson creates paintings of insects using book covers as her canvas. Inspired by the study of insects and strange creatures, what others may find disgusting, she finds beautiful. This series of works opens up on how fragile life is through her use of mixed media that portrays decay. She intends for us to appreciate life, whether it be ours or everything wonderful nature offers.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
