Davis has been an award winning blogger on a-n.co.uk and has published several blogs over the years.
To the Light blog is Rosalind Davis' reflection on her practice in the lead up to a solo show at Bruce Castle Museum in Tottenham 2013, that takes as its starting point, the powerful depictions of the destruction of the 2011 Riots which spread from London to Manchester and moves from this point of destruction to creation of a body of work exploring reparation, space & transformation.
An insightful, reflective diary that deals with the personal aspects of an artist running an artist-led gallery as well as documenting exhibitions and thinking carefully about the pros and cons of the type of work she does. Rosalind seems to be unafraid of writing about contentious topics and is, equally, happy to share her knowledge and experiences with the artistic community. Brilliant".
Rosalind Davis' blog 'Becoming Part of Something' is a perceptive and illuminating insight into the trials and tribulations artists face on their post-college odyssey. 'Becoming Part of Something' won the accolade of a-n's Blog of the Year 2009, and the draw I felt towards it demonstrates that she continues to set a compelling tone. Her posts have the potential to inspire other artists to use their energy and vision to help make change possible.

'An honest self-critique and insight into both making work and developing a career.
'Rosalind Davis' Blog illustrates an artist tentatively using the medium as a tool for self-critique, laying out her feelings about her work as it develops. Beyond the life of this project her blog exists as a living portfolio, as we, the reader are offered a window into the ideas that lay behind each piece as she juggles the pressures of life, work, and artistic ambition...we gain an insight into how her work has been shaped by the community around her. Overall we see a picture of a talented and committed artist, making difficult practice-based and career decisions, whilst trying to remain financially stable, and a functioning person.A narrative I'm sure we can all empathise with.
