Rosetta Santucci

Having spent over a decade experimenting with applications like jewellery and textile design, it was a natural progression for me to start painting.
My background in costume for film and television and a passion for textiles - primarily tribal and ethnic designs – has influenced my painting style.

I’m self taught, and it has only been through practice and time that I have nurtured my style. I grew up in the Barossa Valley surrounded by vineyards and wide open spaces, and in so doing, developed a deep concern with natural forms connected to life – plants, bones, feathers, hills, trees, stones, and water. More and more I realise that my paintings are a path of self discovery and an expression of life’s experiences. As an artist, I understand that nature and life have a lot to offer.

These works reflect a kind of juxtaposition of the landscape around me. Cutting, chopping, and reassembling pieces together again from a scrapbook of memories and imagination. Small dots and markings represent natures gifts from the elements.
