Rosie Brandenburg is a Milwaukee Based Artist that has moved to Los Angeles.
A maker at many intersections of human identity her work deals with the overly sensitive nature of coping in constant confusion and the characters that we become throughout our lives. Her undergraduate work started as large scale installations and paintings with touches of mixed media but soon gave into more mixed media oriented process. A painter at heart but naturally narrative in practice. She is a storyteller with an abundance of characters that personify themes like, identity, heroism, persecution, mental illness, trauma, and more. With this mix of craft and conceptual narration she has started to make dolls, affectionately known as "The Canvas Puppets" of the many characters she has made since childhood.
MiAD class of 2018, biracial woman of an intersectional experience.
