Rosa describes herself - "I am obsessed with the cells signals of living entities, the starting point of everything. I am intrigued by how, why and what for, we all became forms for a short journey on the road to decay. I try to portray the way I see the whole, a bit out of focus and multiple layers, dreamlike images. It's difficult for me to talk about art. I can only say that effects me on a visceral level, simply a human instinct from within. I feel art, it has been haunting me since I can remember, this urge to express myself freely, a way of communicating my ideas. My job is to express myself and in that process to learn a bit more about the self, the surface of my work is not an objective space to express conceptual ideas, composing my pieces is not an intellectual, premeditated activity but an affective one. I feel compelled to examine where i fit into all of this. Is it even possible to know that?"
