Death of Art

might b some of the art i make if i was to do any at all

Rozanna Hawksley’s brilliantly eery work reminds me so much of Francis Bacon’s paintings. Their austere expression deals with aspects of the human condition, particularly death. “Rozanne Hawksley combines textiles, found objects and embroideries to create small-scale textile installations. They all pack an emotional punch, many dealing with themes of loss, isolation and the effects of war (Hawksley herself was a war-time evacuee).” Her work is accompanied by a self-titled book written by Mary Schoeser, which studies the artist’s process and expression.
