Rosie Vohra

  • Rosie Vohra studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at Leeds College of Art (2010-2013) before completing ‘The Drawing Year’ postgraduate programme at The Royal Drawing School (2013-2014) where she was awarded The Sir Denis Mahon Award 2015/16. Solo Exhibitions: 'To Prepare a Face', Royal Drawing School, London (2016); 'New Works by Rosie Vohra', Tall Boys, Leeds (2016). Selected group exhibitions: 'Bought Objects', Very Friendly, Voidoid Archive, Glasgow (2016); 'Drawings from the Royal Drawing School', Christies, New York (2016); 'The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2015', Jerwood Art Space & UK Tour, London (2015); Forever Say, Forever Always, Gage Gallery, Sheffield (2015). Rosie is currently living and working in Leeds and is a member and co-founder of ‘Precious’ Art Collective.

    Rosie's practice emerges from a focus on drawing. She uses the medium to move in and out of fabric, 3-dimensional and painted works. The objects and figures that manifest themselves in these works reference Indian mythology, female identity, domestic arrangements and the fluid connection between observation and the imagination.
