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 symbolism. These archetypal symbols, as they 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 explores the limits of what we claim to know, and challenges the viewer to forge bravely on, into the mysterious realms of the infinite moment.
