Rose de Borman

  • Alumni, 2020


Rose de Borman graduated from the University of Brighton in 2006 with a first-class degree in Textile Design. The Drawing Year has been crucial in positioning her drawing and painting at centre stage, allowing private worlds and rich personal narratives to come to the fore. Rose’s drawings are fragments of experience, told from the ground up. Soupy interiors, backstreet weeds, strange objects and a beloved dying dog are glimpsed - many seen through heightened registers of the recent pandemic. Her work reflects traditions from illuminated manuscripts, folk history and vernacular art to Renaissance paintings. Rose has various freelance teaching roles including running Birdsmouth ceramics studio and is an associate lecturer at Central Saint Martins.
