Rosa Peters / artist


Rosa Peters is an autonomous artist who lives and works in Rotterdam.

In her work you can often find a relationship with early memories, especially of her native village Reveles (Portugal) and architecture and spaces from her early childhood. She works from an irrepressible need to relive these locations, which each time takes shape in a different way and in a new disguise.

The subjective experience of a memory ultimately determines the work she makes; how do you experience the space, the size, the location, the climate, the history of a place if you are not there at that moment. She approaches this from philosophy, geography and architecture.

Her preferred medium is oil paint, with which she translates her inspiration into abstract areas of color with a strong depth effect and layering, which is created by the stacking of many (semi) transparent layers.
