Rachel Rose - Ten Pieces - 2017

Rachel Rose - Ten Pieces - 2017For her KUB edition, Rachel Rose has created a powerful image filled with deep symbolism. Its basic form reproduces the anatomy of the human heart. Outlined in black lines resembling the leading of a stained glass window, the figure glows in intense blues and reds. It is topped by a devil‘s head in light-red, its horns reminiscent of the heart‘s arteries. This motif is quoted from an early-thirteenth-century glass fragment of French origin, which is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Rachel Rose alters her source images with swirls of color, blurring and blending as in a watercolor. The human being appears cast out between monsters, abandoned in the wide worlds of heaven, hell and ancient rock.
