About the Artist
Ros Bason received an MA in Fine Art Contemporary Practice from Falmouth University in 2011. She is a painter and visual artist exploring material processes such as collage, sculpture and the occasional collaborative performance. She describes working in different mediums as a way of making her way into a painting, they act as a catalyst, providing the ingredients to move in a particular direction. Her work explores ideas around the Domestic Surreal, everyday encounters, humour, absurdity, doubt, strange manifestations and the concept she describes as ‘mis-seeing’ when our busy minds misinterpret events or happenings. These quick glimpses and upside-down interpretations tap into the subconscious revealing a whole new world of possibilities.
Her work has been shown in numerous galleries in the South West and North of England. She has been shortlisted for the NOAC and taken part in collaborative performances with artist Frances Williams at The Exchange, Penzance. She recently did a joint Residency and Installation ‘The Sighs’ at The Fish Factory (Penryn) where she has a studio.
