About the Instructor
Rose Christian holds an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Walking, mapping, making close observations, and depicting animacy and kinship with the more-than-human-world are themes in her work. As a physician-scientist, she explored human tissues with microscopes, x-rays, and sound waves to find those subtle shifts in shape, color, and spatiality that signify healing or disease. This practice of close observation has shaped her visual language as an artist expressed in different media: handmade paper, prints, paintings, artist books, drawings, and installations.
