Rosalind Howdle (b. 1997) is a London-based artist. She is currently completing an MA in Painting at the RCA and is a recipient of both the Ali H. Alkazzi Scholarship and the Vanguard Prize.
Where does the female gaze meet the scientific gaze, where does the sexual meet the biological? The abstracted, biomorphic forms which Rosalind employs are inspired by anatomical features, for example, the diagrammatic structures of the clitoris and penis (which are incredibly similar). By hybridising one thing with another - male with female, human with nonhuman - Rosalind aims to reach the place where language’s categorical impulse fails, and thereby explore liminal, non-binary states of being. In other words, this is journey out of categorisation.
