La Petite Gallerie, an intimate Old Town Bluffton shop featuring local art, is introducing the gallery artists to newcomers to our area, and reintroducing to our old friends…
In October we are spotlighting artist Rose Cofield. Previously Rose was a three-dimensional sculptural artist, studied at New York University, New York, NY and received a grant for Apprenticeship at The Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture, Mercerville, NJ (USA). She also taught sculpture workshops through the South Carolina Arts Commission’s “Artist in Education” program, conducting sculpture workshops in South Carolina schools and art organizations.
Now working primarily in 2D, Rose considers herself an abstract intuitive painter. Adding one layer at
a time, she develops her style using color coordination and lines. She also uses geometric pieces, sometimes in the form of painted paper, to add form and dimension. Her blank canvas begins without preconceived notions which allows her instincts and emotions to guide her. This intuitive style encourages her to use creative thinking and experimentation to expand the process. She also uses her imagination to shape her unique artistic vision. This process results in one-of-a-kind pieces allowing the viewer to trust their instincts and letting their emotions guide their appreciation.
Rose is a Signature Member of the National Association of Women Artists, in both the New York and South Carolina Chapters where she has shown her work in many of their exhibitions.
Rose’s unique and thought-provoking art is on display at La Petite Gallerie, and she herself is generally working there on Sundays. Stop by to see her soon – she is delighted to share her latest artistic insights!
