For her first solo exhibition in New York City, Judi Rosen challenges the usual expectation of
objectified female sexuality by creating a sexual tableau of women and the clowns they love.
Inspired by Giallo films and midcentury Modern Finnish arts and crafts, Rosen utilizes her affection
for the fiber arts to combine machismo, feminism and clowns on printed and quilted muslin cotton
and raw silk stretched on canvas.
Judi Rosen has been living and working in New York City since 1992. She employs diverse creative
mediums including taxidermy, live-animation film performance, doll making, screen printing, fiber art,
photography and continues her successful clothing line Judi Rosen New York. Her East Village
boutique The Good The Bad and The Ugly was a creative nexus for downtown New York designers
and artists. Her artwork has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in Rotterdam, Miami,
Tokyo, Kyoto and New York.
“Blow by Blow,” artwork by Judi Rosen runs January 9 through February 6, 2013, at Fuse Gallery,
93 2nd Ave (between 5th & 6th Sts, 2nd Ave stop on the F), NYC, NY. The opening reception, on
