Robin Rose (American, born 1946) works within the demanding field of encaustic painting.

Through an incomparable mastery of this difficult medium, one of the oldest forms of painting, Rose presents concepts germinated from the latest technological advancements, archeological discoveries, and systems analysis.  Rose's abstractions suggest something familiar, driving the viewer towards an intuitive understanding of complex content through a far-reaching variety of color, textures and visual effects. Robin Rose’s work is included in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and The Phillips Collection, Washington DC, among other private and public collections.
