Art Feature: “Cherry Sigh” by A. Roos

Cherry Sigh by A. Roos. Colored Pencil and Sharpie on Paper.

Biography: A.Roos works with acrylic, gouache, watercolor, sharpies, and other mediums to express passion and pain and connect them to nature’s beauty. Their style relies on heavily saturated colors, carefully calculated layers, and intricate details in pieces that may take over 15 hours to complete. Their work is heavily influenced by a craving to cherish the connections and fulfillment found outside of isolating anxiety and religion.

Artist Statement: I’ve been drawing since I was a kid and started painting in 2020. Art is a huge part of my life, and while I want to utilize it as a tool for community-building and solidarity, I am studying Forestry so that financial reliance won’t ruin my deep love of art. It took years of experimenting to find my style, which is forever indebted to a few incredible classes at PCC and hours spent painting murals in my room. Recent inspiration has come from the complexity of becoming an adult, processing a Catholic childhood, and living in an ironically useless political system.

    I love how vibrant and intense this piece is! The colors complement each other really well in the face, and I like how the face’s purple and red contrasts the collar’s green and yellow. The highlights on the lips are so fun and they make this piece pop! Great work!
