Art: Beautifully ethereal, surrealist paintings by artist Marie Rosen

Artist Marie Rosen’s brand of surrealism is a very specific one; her images seem to be sinister circumstances masquerading as hazy pastel-dominated images, delivered via the medium of delicate brushstrokes and strangely realistic-looking figures. Twins crop up a lot in the Belgian artist’s work, as do geometrically patterned carpets and tiles, rainbow-coloured horizons and legs without bodies, not to mention the odd bare mattress. If it all sounds a bit like something out of The Shining then I’m not doing justice though; the eery peculiarity here is balanced with an equal dose of sweet, in the form of marshmallow skies and a quiet, soft calm. Lovely stuff.
