Artist Statement/Bio
ARTISTS' STATEMENT
There is more to life than our physical reality.
What I depict with my art are the simultaneous physical, spiritual and energetic realities and their interactions, much like the multiple selves described in Huna beliefs. Drawing from personal experience and observations noted from meditation and Reiki practice, these images are meant to illustrate the energies at play at different moments and situations.

A combination of sculpture and oil painting, the images are human sized, the people depicted by plaster casts off of real-life people. These are then attached to canvases, sized to take in the people and their immediate zone of activity. The ripples of energy are sculpted in a mix of latex-bound materials and painted over in oils, the colors reflecting the different aspects of those energies.

I very much welcome discussion regarding these works. Feel free to contact me for further discussion or speaking engagements.

BIOGRAPHY
Rosemary Wessel is a mixed-media painter as well as professional graphic artist and photographer, located in Cummington, Massachusetts on the edge of the Berkshires. An avid gardener, she is also often found painting outdoors in the spring, summer and fall. During the winter, she works in her small in-home studio and plans concepts for new series of work through extensive sketching.

Growing up in Brattleboro, Vermont, she began pursuing her multiple interests in fine art, photography, animation and graphic design for publishing during her high school years. Continuing interest led to a B.A. in Fine Art from Castleton State College and M.S. in Design from the University of Massachusetts as well as over 18 years in the graphic design and advertising industry. In 1998 through 2002, Rosemary studied clinical hypnosis and Reiki, obtaining Reiki Master/Teacher level and trained students in the practice of the Japanese tradition or Usui Reiki.

She now continues work in tutoring and freelance graphic design and photography through her Three Salamanders Design Studio and continues to create and exhibit new work.

Welcome to my profile.

I'm an artist and photographer, currently seeking exhibit space for my paintings and/or gallery representation. Please feel free to visit my online gallery, complete with works in progress blog.

I'm also a graphic designer very familiar with creating promotional materials of all kinds for artists. See my online portfolio to see if I can help you with your show cards, posters, brochures - even catalogs. 20 years' experience, current technical skills.

I look forward to meeting more artists, gallery owners and others involved in the arts through this community. :)
