Meganne Rosen graduated from Drury University with a Bachelor of Arts with Honors (BAH) in Art History with minors in Fine Art and English in 2006. She completed her Master of Arts (MA) in Studio Art and Theory at Drury University in 2011. She currently resides in Oakland, California, where she recently graduated with a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco. During her first year at CCA, she was the co-director of the Graduate Student Alliance, a graduate teaching assistant for three art history courses, and a gallery assistant for the exhibitions department.
Using found matter, fiber works, oil and acrylic painting, remnant fabrics, and photography, Rosen composes mixed media pieces which are layered in visual dialogues. The work evokes an intimate recollection of garments worn, skins shed, and packaging discarded. Each assemblage or installation is a partnership between the materials she works with and the sociopolitical, cultural context of our times.
