This survey publication documents the work of the visual artist Rose Frain. The book features 18 of the artist’s major projects, citing stylistic and conceptual developments; it includes critical essays, full chronology and bibliography. The book has been realised with an award from Creative Scotland and was published by Sissy Graffiti in September 2019, with launch events and related exhibitions at the Glasgow Women’s Library, Newcastle University, and Goldsmiths, University of London.
Rose Frain has a fascinating oeuvre that covers several decades. The project is extremely relevant in the context of significant women artists and apt too since the themes of her work are so acutely relevant today.
– Adele Patrick, Glasgow Womens' Library
