Rosie Weiss – Collected works
MPRG collection focus
29 May – 22 August 2021
Rosie Weiss is a Mornington Peninsula-based artist who makes work about our relationship with the natural world. In 2020, MPRG was successful with a Robert Salzer Foundation Acquisition Fund grant, administered by the PGAV, to acquire a suite of thirteen works on paper by Weiss. The Friends of MPRG supported the acquisition with matched funding, enabling MPRG to acquire key works that provide an overview of the artists’ practice from 1979 through to 2018.
Highlighting the enduring focus of her practice over the past 40 years, this suite of works traces the development of Weiss’ practice from a sustained period of printmaking in the 1980s at the Australian Print Workshop through to her more recent drawing practice.
