Katherine Anne Rose

Katherine Anne Rose is a visual artist from the UK, currently living in Glasgow, Scotland. Her practice employs mathematics and geometry to investigate visual forms in paper. With repeated simple cutting and folding techniques, she creates large scale wall installations in paper.

Her current work is inspired by the patterns we see in our surroundings, from the molecular to the universal scale. Following strict rules, she creates complex weaving and interlocking shapes. These structures are carved from a single plane revealing a third dimension, which plays with light, transforming its appearance throughout the course of the day in natural light. The use of repeated geometric forms in religious decorative art; islamic tiles, indian mandalas, is of interest, the relationship between science and belief or awe and wonder reflected in a material surface.

Katherine works as an editorial photographer in the UK.
