The Cosmic Dance Series

Utzon's Cosmic Dance series, which forms the basis of this collaboration, expresses the essence of nature as a cosmic dance. Through her paintings, works on paper, and sculptures, Utzon captures the sense of mystery within nature, striking a balance between the refined rigour of monochromatic line, an architectural sensibility, and the movement of the natural world. Her creations, which have included costumes and scenery for the Royal Danish Ballet, exude a timeless elegance that transcends traditional art mediums.

As Utzon notes, "the more chaotic the world seems, the more we need art - to be removed from our own selves and long for something different." In the face of global crises, art provides a respite from the daily pressures of life and a means of envisioning alternative futures. Wearable art, in particular, offers a unique opportunity to bring art into the public sphere and to spark conversation around pressing issues. By wearing a piece of art, one becomes a walking canvas, inviting dialogue and contemplation.

In this enlightening interview, we delve into the artistic world of Rosso Emerald Crimson, a painter renowned for her vibrant creations and nuanced narratives.

Merging her background in International Communications and Human Rights, Rosso's work challenges societal norms and cultural biases, offering intriguing glimpses into the female psyche. Her collaboration with Sittingsuits brings her art into the realm of fashion, transforming her beloved designs into wearable art pieces. Influenced by yoga, meditation, and nature, Rosso's work stimulates senses often suppressed in our daily lives. While maintaining her artistic integrity, she navigates the commercial art industry with grace, welcoming feedback to refine her narratives and styles.

Read on to learn more about her artistic journey and inspirations.

Born in Istanbul, Özlem Thompson had a passion for art from a very young age. However, after completing her undergraduate degree in biology and obtaining a master's degree in botany, she decided to pursue her art career. Her background in biology and organic structures strongly influenced her art, and she became known for abstracting natural forms to convey concepts from her subconscious.

Özlem draws her inspiration from nature, including her eight years of studying biology, from single-celled organisms to entire ecosystems, evolution, microbiology, and her own imagination. She believes that art must come from within a person before they can incorporate it into their work, and that artistic people have a unique way of seeing the world.
In today's fast-paced world, it's hard to come up with a product that genuinely solves a problem while being sustainable and innovative. Sittingsuits, the brainchild of Rebecca Johansen and Vibe Johansson, is one such product that has made a significant impact in various industries by rethinking the way people experience the outdoors.

Rebecca Johansen, CEO of Sittingsuits ApS and owner of Axelhus & Axelbar in Elsinore, Denmark, has been an experienced restaurateur for over 16 years. With 450 outdoor seatings combined, she faced the challenge of keeping her guests warm and comfortable in all types of weather. While traditional solutions like outdoor heating and blankets offered some respite, they lacked the sustainability and effectiveness that Rebecca desired.
