Creating Space: Rose E. DeSloover

“The creative process directly engages chaos. The process of making art is one way to the individual and the collective unconscious. Using the approach of sustained reflection, the basic motivation has always been the same — to see in a fresh way, outside the normal patterns, to discover or invent new form. Each generation is presented its own array of opportunities, challenges and problems calling for creative involvement. “

Rose E. DeSloover is a conceptual color/word artist who has been actively engaged in the metro Detroit art community for many years. She has an M.F.A. from the Claremont Graduate University in California. She was on the faculty of Marygrove College for 44 years and served as Dean of the Visual and Performing Arts Division.
