As an artist Rose Strang's interest is in communicating an atmospheric, visceral repsonse to landscape.

Rose also researches the environment, history and geology of the landscape she paints.

The series of work Rose is exhibiting at The Scottish Design Exchange is inspired by her recent trip to the Isle of Harris in the Scottish Hebrides this year.

Rose often works in collaboration with poets or musicians, which she finds an inspiring part of the creative process, resulting in multi-layered interpretations for artist and viewer.

Her work has been shown in galleries around the UK and abroad including the Royal Scottish Academy, City Art Centre, Open Eye and Sutton Galleries in Edinburgh, the Lighthouse, Brighton, Limetree in Bristol, Gallery One, Berlin and Corte Real in Portugal.

Rose also worked for many years in the field of public art, most recently as lead artist / curator for the Leverndale Hospital, Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
