My art has been influenced by the ever changing aspects of light and shadow and I have portrayed these in various themes such as bullfights, horses and flowers. My painting technique is also deeply influenced by Gauguin, Hopper and Picasso.
Rosemary Bonnin will exhibit at Alchemist Gallery in 2021.
Born in Scotland, from childhood Rosemary enjoyed drawing and sketching. She studied Art and French in Leeds then lived in the South of France for over thirty years, part of that time in Arles. Its close proximity to the Camargue gave great scope to develop her painting of bulls and horses. On moving to Marseille, she began to paint a series of horses called 'La Cavalcade'. "Painting animals is still my forte and has formed the bulk of my artwork at various exhibitions."
Each summer the family came to holiday in the North of Scotland, away from the French heat. Here she was captivated by the much purer light, creating many different tones and values. In 2014 they came to live permanently in the Highlands, "a wonderful part of the world where each season offers refreshing challenges".
Rosemary runs also children’s art classes and teaches in collaboration with MFR Cash For Kids Hands on Art Project.
