Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, presents Hold On: The Art of Rosie Winstead.

Artist Statement: “Painting for me is the result of an internal dialogue I have with myself. I don’t see it as a verb, a hobby, or me trying to be an artist. I see it more as a place I like to go. A place where my heart and eyes can have a conversation without saying a word.

“Gathering from the intermittent observations that I tend to find in the shadows of the bigger picture, the pressures we put on ourselves, others, and as mothers, while holding onto what is dear as we feel the way through the dark are several elements that make up the backbone of this body of work.”

Artist Biography: Rosie Winstead is a self-taught, published children’s author and illustrator. After publishing three books with Dial Books for Young Readers, Rosie is setting forth to illustrate another two picture books with award winning author Sara O’leary. In the midst of writing and illustrating children’s books, her artwork has started to take on many new forms—one being painting. Taking what she learned from illustrating and applying it to a larger scale, different medium and new voice, Rosie has created her first body of work entitled Hold On. (417) 616-6488
