• BIO
  • Francisca Rosner is an Amsterdam-based visual artist. She started out as a photographer and gradually moved her practice to paintings and sculptures. Her fascination for the interdisciplinary is tangible in her works of art. The knowledge she gains in one medium, is used to take new steps in the other. This way, she places herself in between multiple disciplines and comes across the limits of the different materials she encompasses in her works. Rosner embraces these limitations by crossing the formal boundaries. This results in layered, almost transcendental works with subtle and less subtle contrasts in color and form. These contrasting elements provide multiple perspectives for the spectator.
