The condition of this painting can vary widely and the nature of the paint sold means that they are unlikely to be in perfect condition. Paintings are sold in the condition that they are at the time of sale.
Rossi makes no distinction between abstraction and nature, her work is concerned in translating nature’s majesty into paint. Anchored by natural sea mollusks and sea glass, her paintings divulge an intimate ocean island in the Pacific leading to a constellation of brushstrokes. Executed in 2018 Sea Star Island is an allusive painting of exuberant fluency and riotous color in which the viewer is invited to project their own interpretations onto neither fully abstract nor figurative forms. With its mesmeric, Aqua meditative surface, Sea Star Island swells and pulsates with an aura of brilliance and the beauty of the natural sea.
