QUADRELLI, Rosa

I am a Scottish visual artist born in Glasgow in 1996. I recently graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a first-class BA Hons in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking in 2018.
�Theatre of Memories� is the name given to a collection of puppets and dolls I have created during the past four years. These characters, both mundane and fantastical, include depictions of important people in my life, satirical caricatures of historical figures, and strange beings symbolic of more abstract thoughts and emotions. I use these figures to recreate memories, depict relationships, and personify opposing elements within my psyche. I approaches these ideas through a variety of media, including drawing, painting, photography, film and installation.
I am primarily influenced by the works of Paula Rego, Jos� Guti�rrez-Solana and Jan _vankmajer who all explore the thin line between the humorous and the macabre in a style which is often unsettling.
