Passion and Nobility: The Art of Rose Adare

Restraint and Revolution

Portraits by Rose Adare—Because the Edge is Always Cutting

Koyote, While Life Still Lasts Within Me, and Mysterium painting details by Rose Adare. Rhinos on Fire in the Garden, Fire and Steady Hands, and Bonnie is Clyde painting details by Rose Adare. Primal Buddha, Bring Me My Ghosts, and Ardens (Passion) painting details by Rose Adare.


Honoring the wildly diverse, Adare's stunning portrait series Restraint & Revolution embodies the dynamic subcultures of the 21st century . Using corsetry as a symbol of Restraint & Revolution, each vision wears a handmade waist-synch or bustier visually symbolizing their struggle for free expression. Why? Because the edge is always cutting, and once prude corsetry is now scandalous lingerie.
