This book surveys the paintings of New York–based artist Rosy Keyser (b. 1974), which are constructed from such ordinary materials as linen, canvas, aluminum, paint, gravel and sawdust, evoking the raw energy of action painting and Art Brut.
Half-Light Periscope, New York–based painter Rosy Keyser’s (born 1974) second publication with Karma, focuses on her steel paintings. The book presents a selection of large paintings incorporating corrugated steel, rope, house paint, horsehair and other “resuscitated” materials, as well as a series of smaller studies collaging ink, pencil, monoprint and Xerox on paper.
