Dion Rosina's practice begins with extensive research into strange stories, mysteries, and unexplained phenomena that verge on the paranormal. He collects a wide range of related visuals, from ancient figures and patterns to jazz photography and celestial bodies, and creates a digital composition that captures the essence of the story. These images are then translated and subverted on the canvas, creating an even wilder narrative.

The artist employs traditional techniques, such as oil on canvas, and gives particular attention to light and stark contrasts; however, his works often contain deceiving clues and play with the viewer’s expectations. Rosina's artistic practice encourages reflection on the mysteries and mythologies that permeate our lives, and the ways in which we can subvert them to create new narratives.
