Rose Gilderson-Duwe is a multidisciplinary artist in Wisconsin who creates both fine art and design.


I believe that images can oftentimes convey human emotions better than words.  In my work, I utilize the form and expression of the human figure, hands, and facial features to objectively show emotions.  I hope for people to be able to feel my art in the same way they read body language and cues. My goal is to create a space for the emotional quality of my work to resonate with the viewer.


My work is usually high in contrast, oftentimes black and white or with limited color, along with a rough, sketchy line quality to connect the emotion of a piece‚Äôs subject with its medium.  The physical process of putting my emotions into my marks is key to creating the expressive resonance of each piece.
