Within just a few months of the critically acclaimed solo exhibition and book launch ‘Out of The Blue’ held at Mall Galleries in August 2015, Rosa Sepple was appointed to serve as Vice-President to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, representing the first female to hold such a position in their 185-year history.

September will mark Rosa Sepple's return to Mall Galleries with a new collection of 65 mixed-media paintings revealing the fascinating visual world created by one of our most exciting and intriguing British artists. 

This latest solo exhibition in September 2017 is Rosa Sepple's first as President of the RI and the presentation and exhibition arrangements continue in association with Norfolk based Adrian Hill Fine Art

"My paintings are an expression of a playful world I never had. Somehow I missed my childhood, went straight into marriage and motherhood and much of the fun in life seemed to pass me by. Now, as I sit and work in my studio, I can take my most excessive imaginings for a walk in complete safety and do all the naughty things I might like to have done."  Rosa Sepple

"There is a long running conundrum - "Are artists born or made?" Many contradictory views are held but I favour the one expressed by the writer and film director, Woody Allen, who said; "You can work and work and work, but if you don't have it inborn, then it's a hopeless pusuit." Rosa Sepple is surely a textbook example of inborn artistic talent. Sepple's affinity with other painters is not solely the result of eclecticism; the observant will see echoes of Marc Chagall (the flying figures) and perhaps even a suggestion of John Piper (in some of her vivacious architectual scenes). However, her images are certainly not flaccid imitations - far from it. Sepple has developed a highly distinctive style that is intensely personal." Anthony J. Lester - Member of International Association of Art Critics and Fellow of the Royal Society of Art
