As a viewer wanders through the Gardens of Versailles, she perceives a continually unfolding spectacle: each element relating to the next in a sophisticated way and impacted by the chosen path, time of day, and season. Creating this series of drawings combined Rosner's interests in space, color, form, line, and landscape. The drawings are speculations about an existing place and its potential for abstraction.
