Roos’ work reflects a radically caring approach and attentiveness to a world of increasingly indifferent materialism.

These works place human touch defiantly center stage.

Her tactile exploration of our everyday world features materials conventionally considered trash and useless. This work advocates our intrinsic capacity to salvage, protect and tend to an environment vigorously supplanted by virtual experience, asensuality and numbness.

Roos’ path leads, involuntarily, to small scale works and examinations of substances and materials at the edge of ephemerality. The intense focus on small-scale, concentrated areas increases their energy and radiance.

These works are humorous confrontations between conflicting worlds, evoking both subtle tension and bold implication. Sometimes light and playful, they reveal an inspired look at the future with heightened sensibility, while not taking themselves all that seriously.
