ila rose is a painter, based out of Eugene, Oregon.
Rose is inspired and humbled by those who have formed close relationships with the earth. Instances of this human-environment interconnection are rich with shared symbolism. These symbols, which echo throughout time and space, have instinctively landed themselves in ila's art. She finds her work guides her, rather than the other way around. Science is important and fascinating to rose, who also honors the magic that lingers in that which is unknown and unprovable. With the painter's tools, ila rose explores the limits of what we know, and challenges the viewer to forge bravely on, into the unchartered realms of infinite possibility.
