Heike Rose studied fine arts in Munich and has Master’s degrees from two universities.  Since that time she has been working as a freelance artist.  Her art has been displayed at numerous galleries in London and Manchester, England, as well as Berlin, Wiesbaden and Dusseldorf, Germany.

Her paintings are works of contrasts between reality and fantasy. She works primarily with acrylics, showing symbolic portraits of women de-individualized in their external appearance.  The paintings hint at the suggestive, pointing out ambiguities in the viewer’s fantasy by constructing situations which open the mind to conflicts and contradictions.

BAYOU-DREAM-Acrylic-Paint-o

“BAYOU DREAM” 2014
100 cm x 70 cm
Acryl auf Aluminium

 Die Landschaften oder das urbane Umfeld zeigen eine imaginäre, von Phantasien besetzte Wirklichkeit. Durch meine stilisierte Formensprache und Symbolik lasse ich die Szenerien vordergründig und plakativ wirken, die entstehende Erotik wird bewusst banalisiert.
Sie kommentieren kollektive Mythologien, inspiriert durch die Frau als archetypische Figur. Meine sicht auf das Weibliche und die Natur möchte ich als Gegenpol zur Ironisierung eines vorrangig von der männlichen Perspektive bestimmten Weiblichkeitsbildes künftig noch stärker in meine Bilder einfließen lassen. Die von mir in der oben geschilderten Ambivalenz dargestellte „Weiblichkeit“ erweitert sich in dieser Perspektive zur „Wildnis“, zur „Wilden Natur“, und verweist damit sowohl auf das „Sinnliche“, als auch auf das „Sinnhafte“. Wildnis ist Gefahr und verlorenes Paradies zugleich.

“BAYOU DREAM” 2014
40’’ x 28’’
Acrylic paint on Aluminium

The landscapes and urban environments evoke an imagery reality, occupied by fantasies. Through stylized form and symbolism I let the scenes seem superficial and striking; the resulting eroticism is deliberately banal.
My work comments on the collective mythologies inspired by the woman as an archetypal figure. Through gestures, postures, environment and the expression of the supposedly familiar, universally applicable and often ambiguous, my work develops a pictorial message that makes the superficial appearance of the overall image questionabl. Femininity and nature is something I integrate into my paintings and use as an ironic counterpoint to the male point of view on femininity.
“Femininity" expands under this perspective to "wilderness", to "wild nature”. Wilderness can be seen as danger and lost paradise at the same time.
