About Rebecca Rose
Rebecca Rose is a multimedia artist based in Washington, DC, whose main focus is on artistic transformation and empowerment by painting on both the human body and traditional canvas. To Rose, body painting is about self love and self acceptance, about being comfortable in the skin you are in - it's an echoing of the subconscious through the arts. "I've painted many people, and everyone I've painted has something they feel insecure about. Body painting is not only a physical transformation, but a way of seeing yourself in a new light. It can be therapeutic, as the real magic isn't found in the finished painting, but in the process of the painting, in the transformative moments ... I love painting people as there's an openness, a sense of trust and vulnerability, often with complete strangers. A beautiful reminder that we are all connected and we are all human." - Rose.
Body painting is spiritual in nature - it’s a creative therapy, yoga and meditation all in one. When a person is painted, there is often a rebirth, a new "becoming". The painting process itself allows us to acknowledge and recognize feelings that have been lurking in our subconscious and awaken our self awareness. The paint has the power to transform a persons identity by erasing an individual’s history, race, sex and background - and then be born into something, someone else. It has the power to elevate the individual to a higher state as they become a living, breathing work of art.
