Keyser’s paintings deviate from the main road. They mine the side roads and the edges of our minds and return to what consciousness has drop- ped. The pictorial is indivisible from the material, yet all the while main- tains a playful and deviant relationship.
Like poetry, in which a single word or line becomes a matrix, for the pro- liferation of thought and form, the bodies of Keyser’s paintings become scaffolds for intervention and expansion.
”Paintings are tools, but they have been made strange, and that is the source of their power.“ (Alva Nöe)
Rosy Keyser has been participating in considerable museum exhibi- tions, such as “Painter Painter” at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, ”Painting from the Zabludowicz Collection: Part II“ at the Zabludowicz Collection, London, as well as “Pink Caviar“ at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, whose collections also house works by the artist. She also took part in solo exhibitions with Peter Blum (2008 – 2013) and Maccarone (2014) in New York.
