Rosie Schinners is a collage artist who resides in Vancouver, Canada. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Guelph in Guelph, Canada as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University in Halifax, Canada. Since childhood she has been cutting, pasting, and leaving scraps of paper around the house.
Her work currently explores the invisible energies that surround us, things we cannot see which can make us feel connected or disconnected to the people and places we interact with. She attempts to make that unseen energy visible, whether as magical blooms of flowers, crowds of connected people, or bursts of raw colour.
The work submitted speaks to the female experience, both personal and as a collective whole. It describes the anxiety faced when dealing with social interactions in a patriarchal culture, while also remaining hopeful that women's voices and experiences are being heard and acknowledged.
