Rosalind Tallmadge lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She has shown in Cincinnati, Detroit, Miami, Seattle, and New York. She received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2015, attended residencies at Yale Norfolk and OxBow, and received her BFA in Painting and BA in Art History from Indiana University.
Tallmadge’s paintings engage the history of Formalism and the politics of beauty and surface. Using multimedia decorative materials, she creates a dialogue between external sources in urban and natural environments with a more internal process of making. The paintings function as meditative artifacts of a geological time, evoking natural processes of growth or decay.
