"Pigeon Spikes Of London" This work is all about the intention of point in out the invisible structures that have developed within modern cities. The series investigates spaces where architecture has a power over its residents. The anti-roosting spikes or roost modifications that exist on buildings all across big cities. The device consists of long, needle-like rods used for bird control. They can be attached to building ledges, street-lighting, and commercial signage to prevent wild orferal birds from perching or roosting. My concern is that this also is a reflection of the discrimination and exclusion of different human groups based on ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, physical or mental capacity etc. Pigeon spikes will explore this powerful image which silently pervades our urban landscape and society.

La Rosa is an artist affected by themes relating to childhood and the experience of growing up in community with a strong connection with the environment. Originally from Narino, Colombia after graduate leave to study English and start working in New Zealand after seven years leave to Namibia for one year and from there to the UK. currently based in Brighton. La Rosa’s work seeks to explore the connection amongst ourselves and with our relationship with the environment. This interest has been expressed through the investigation of the fragmentation of relationships at a societal and wider ambiental level. Projects have included ‘Product of Colombia’ solo exhibition which portrayed the disconnect between westerner consumers and coffee producers in Colombia through reused coffee sacks, and "Las Negritas" which critiqued the continued subservient portrayal of black women in Colombian popular culture. Racial segmentation has been later explored in an African context through the 2014 series called Submarine desert which represents desertscape post-apartheid social structures in Namibia. Natural themes predominate and are often explored through childish associations. Our urge to connect with the essential and authentic resonant throughout the work and naive representation used to point to continuous rebirth from our surroundings. This is expressed through images of animals and landscapes and has included series ranging from the experience of Namibian animals participating in environmental decay, the disconnected of deer in a London park, and the interstellar promotion of second-class animals, where those are not privileged from humans and so many times forcing to domesticated and or have mistreated, as in the series "Pigeon Spikes" Using spontaneous recycled materials so giving a reason to create La Rosa is currently working on a series called "Barb Wire" Rosa Baquero earned her MFA from the institute departamental of Fine Arts, Cali-Colombia.
