Rosy & Rich

Rosy & Rich (Rosie Parsonson and Richard Darbyshire) are mid career Tai Tokerau artists with a combined art practice spanning forty years. They officially established Rosy & Rich thirteen years ago, successfully merging their specific skills in ceramics, painting, printmaking and sculpture. The practiced, engraved line and infused colour composed by the hand and mind of Rosie Parsonson, sits over and around the archetypal vessels and forms thrown, sculpted and fired by Richard Darbyshire. Engaging the ceramic medium to work on a scale that reflects the epic nature of the enduring human condition, their distinctly collaborative works sit politely in western art fascination of classic themes, whilst maintaining a contemporary, unfettered conversation challenging archetypes.
