A Painter’s Passion

Wednesday, July 5, 2017, By: kristen

Rosy Sunshine is a Queer-Dominican artist from the pre-gentrified, Lower East Side of Manhattan, currently residing in Albany, NY. In the series, Ancestral Vessels of Feminist Resistance, Rosy Sunshine creates vibrant paintings of survival. Her color-filled goddesses explore the power to reclaim the physical realm and thrive after acts of gender-based violence.  Exhausted by countless stories of objectification, sexual harassment, child sexual abuse, gender policing, as well as her own experiences with violence in many forms, Rosy Sunshine’s work builds a feminist tribe that forms an impenetrable fortress of delicate strength and fierce resistance. It’s a reminder that we have always been powerful, vibrant and present just as we are, no matter what we’ve survived. The series reflects that we continue to be vivacious, pulsating, and beautiful in our paths towards healing.
