Born 1979 into a family of artists, Blue Starseed (Meredith Rose) grew up in Philadelphia and a remote island in Maine. She received her BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and completed their European Honors Program in Rome. She also studied at Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland.
But does it really matter where I went to school? Listen. The message is Love and you may not consciously think that upon gazing at the artwork. But it will infiltrate. I paint what I want to paint and purposely do not seek gallery representation. I exhibit in wilderness, and once in awhile in a box or "building" to redefine what a solo exhibition really is. My recent work, post nudes and when the nebulae started entering, come from visions and seeking truth, which I describe further in my recent solo show interview, "All One" at Shumei International Institute, Crestone, Colorado. And now, back to my normal Bio as defined by the system:
Visionary experiences, truth, and outerspace influence Blue Starseed's figurative paintings. Expressive figures that she creates are painted from live models and incorporated into the natural world. Blue Starseed's recent work portrays humans in the cosmos or floating in clouds. She paints on hemp linen for environmental reasons. Her charcoal figure drawings are high contrast and sharp in execution. In an ongoing series of art videos, she performs paintings in extreme environments internationally to redefine what a “solo exhibition” truly is. Besides outdoors, she has exhibited in galleries such as A Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico, San Juan College, New Mexico, the Shumei International Institute, Colorado, and the Centro Cultural, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. Blue Starseed currently lives in Crestone, Colorado.
