Adare’s “50 Shades of Real” exhibition “explores modern sensual taboos without the fiction”.  Her other long-running projects include “Mahalo Nui Loa”, an homage to indigenous cultures and “Modern Muses”, a reimagining of archetypal myths.

  1. Rose Adare’s paintings are stunning and masterful works of art. Her oil painting techniques hark back to the Renaissance masters, yet her subject matter is provocatively 21st century. She deserves worldwide recognition.
