Drawing on mid-Twentieth Century design and visual art, Rosie Rendles’ paintings explore otherwise ordinary interior spaces, rendering them as dreamlike narratives, where the representation of both time and space is questioned, and the boundaries between the real and conjectured blurred.

Rendles reduces her images to minimal forms, using flat plains of colour and a muted, pastel colour palette, suggesting both a sense of comfort but also a detachment from reality within the paintings. Her sculptural works explore the process involved in producing mid-century furniture, using tubular steel as the main component, taking their increasingly romanticised ‘futuristic’ aesthetic as a starting point to examine the role that a form such as a chair, a body or a moment can play within a space.

Where people are represented in her work they are as nudes and erotica, a more playful depiction of human experience and its interaction with space, both remembered and imagined.
