The artist behind Netflix's Original Series Grace & Frankie, Nancy Rosen, joins us again for another showing of her newest works alongside her daughter-in-law, Monalisa Rosen.

Nancy Rosen works on a variety of surfaces. She creates her images with the application of oil bars, china markers, graphite and oil paint, using live models. With her complex backgrounds she accentuates the quiet inner beauty of her figure and draws life itself into her subject.

Monalisa Rosen creates mixed media collages in the form of silhouetted portraits with the use of fabrics, paper, oil pastels and paint. They are mainly made with leftover scrap fabrics discarded after making masks.
