I would like to invite you to ‘Fruit Saloon’ an exhibition of recent paintings on display at The Gallery Cafe in St Margaret’s House Bethnal Green London. The new works are inspired by my recent reflections on veganism, imported goods and what makes something exotic, following my travels in Peru.
The private view will take place at 7 -9pm on thursday 5th of April 2018 as part of east London first thursdays.
St. Margaret’s House is a charity that has been supporting community, creativity and wellbeing in Bethnal Green since 1889. The exhibition will take place at the Gallery Cafe which is a plant based cafe which is part of St Margaret’s House.

This exhibition focuses on paintings inspired by a recent stay in a small village in Peru, on the edge of the Amazon Jungle. Working with natural pigments and foraged materials found around the Peruvian Inca Heartland Rosa has used seeds, bark, roots, stones and clay to create some of the works in this exhibition.
Processing raw materials to create natural watercolours this exhibition investigates how we relate to nature and what makes something exotic.
