Godeleine de Rosamel
Born in 1968 in Lille France, Godeleine de Rosamel lives and works in Los Angeles. After graduating from ERG (Ecole de Recherche graphique) in Brussel, she worked as a painter and illustrator for 10 years in Paris. Since moving in 2011 in Los Angeles, she started working with ceramics full time and is currently collaborating with several galleries in the US. She likes that her work let her play first at being the original creator of imaginary life forms and then at enacting the evolutionary process by which they struggle to adapt and perfect themselves. After spending so much time watching how the animals were growing and evolving, she realized that it was time to give them their own biotope of plants and trees, that hopefully will develop and mature in relationship with them. Creating the plants proves as complicated as creating the animals. Of course, all life forms are sophisticated and there is no reason for the vegetal kingdom to be any easier to imagine and create than the animal one. This new development in her work follows Godeleine’s interest in natural history, evolution and the wonders of Nature in general.
