Jane Rosen has the unique ability to evoke both enigma and precision with her work. Her chosen subjects, animals wild and tame, are used as vehicles to explore their instincts and natural intelligence.
For Rosen, understanding animal nature is the key to understanding human nature. Much of her work concerns capturing a moment when an animal is caught in the act of looking or doing; these creatures have an intention, but how aware are they of themselves and their actions? Rosen’s work subtly and elegantly poses this question.
