Rose Finn -Kelcey was born in Northampton and has lived and worked in London since 1968. She is a seminal figure in performance and time-based work.
I work in the belief - or - dare that I can continue to reinvent myself and remain a perennial beginner. This questions the convention that artists must limit themselves to the elaboration of motifs and the refining of style in one singular medium. I may play on the expectations and discourses of the art space, yet each work has a pristine integrated identity and a strong sense of irony For many years my work has humorously engaged with the esoteric and the immaterial.
