Closing Reception with the Artists Saturday May 17, 6-9pm

 A BFA Student at UW-Madison Libby Rosa focuses on the female form. She finds because she is a woman it is what she is most familiar with. Women figure studies are the protagonists for her  works that explore the theme of private verses public actions in our society. The actions that an individual participates in, in their walls of their home, differs immensely from how someone acts when all eyes can see them… The obscurity of norms and societal standards of what is acceptable to be ‘shown-openly’ such-as nudity, and sex is apparent in her latest works. She uses fabrics, and skin like canvas sewn together to allude to skin and clothing that hides our bodies to make us ‘appropriate’ or inappropriate. The gestural half naked figures’ poses and expressions represent intimacy, bodily lust, confusion and uncomfortably with the viewer seeing them.
In 
Wide Open Libby Rose has collaborated with four other Madison artists exploring similar themes.
