BIOGRAPHY: 

Rosa Zaira Quadrelli is a Scottish visual artist born in Glasgow in 1996. She recently graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a first-class BA Hons in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking in 2018.  

 

‘Theatre of Memories’ is the name given to a collection of puppets and dolls created by Quadrelli during the past four years. These characters, both mundane and fantastical, include depictions of important people in her life, satirical caricatures of historical figures, and strange beings symbolic of more abstract thoughts and emotions. She uses these figures to recreate memories, depict relationships, and personify opposing elements within her psyche. She approaches these ideas through a variety of media, including drawing, painting, photography, film, and installation. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Rosa Quadrelli invites us into a world of her imagination, beautifully realised in drawings and sculptures, like a haunted children’s story. Even after more than 100 artists, her work still has power to stand out as one of the highlights of the show."

- The Scotsman

 

 

"Rosa Quadrelli has turned her undoubted talents as a figurative artist to a mix of puppetry and print-making with a Gothic horror twist." 

- The Herald
