About Traces of Traces
Demonstrating Rosie’s ongoing preoccupation with found and recycled materials and also her innovative methods of working Traces of Traces was commissioned by the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Fabricated from recycled glass and steel, the piece echoes not only a boat form, but also that of a hammock, providing a sense of relaxation and encouraging the viewer to rest in order to re-energize.
About the artist
Working with indoor and outdoor spaces, Leventon’s practice reflects contemporary issues and displays a strong interest in vernacular architecture, archaeology and green concerns. Her site-specific UK commissions can be seen at the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Woods in Leicestershire, at Clifton Country Park near Manchester and at Kings Wood, Challock in Kent. She has undertaken a recent residency period for Vistabella Land Art in Spain, and plans for 2017 include a three location exhibition of sculpture in Italy. A member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Rosie studied at Central St Martins in London and her studio practice is based in Kilburn.
