  • A refreshing perspective: a visual essay in Creatie

    In News on

    An Amsterdam based magazine Creatie has a visual essay by Mischa Rozema
    of PostPanic that makes you look at my work from a refreshing perspective.
    While I couldn’t fully get the text part since the magazine is in Dutch, the
    pictures tell the story very well.  To me the essay focuses on how we are as a
    peculiar specie on the planet that can see who we are and tries to shape who
    we are.  The essay tells our excitements, uncertainties, oddities and triumphs
    in the process.  It’s always refreshing and enjoyable to see someone coming
    up with a solid theme out of my non-referential work.  Thank you Mischa.

    To see the essay, please go to main part of my site, click PRESS.  It should appear in
    the list as “A Visual Essay by Mischa Rozema”.

    Three other artists who appear in the essay are exceptional.  Here are some other
    works by them which do not appear in the essay.  Hope you visit their sites for more.

  • Art Chicago 2010 Pictures Added

    In News on

    I’ve just added some photos from Art Chicago to the main part of the site
    (please go to PHOTOS and look under Art Chicago April 30-May 3, 2010).
    Andreas and Kevin from Aureus Contemporary along with their installation
    specialist  Christopher Faiss did a maximum job in hanging a great show at
    the booth. As I was looking forward to seeing, it was so satisfying that Karim‘s
    paintings and my sculptures interacted so nicely. Here are some for you to see.
    Please go to the main site for the complete set and the enlarged versions.

  • but does it float

    In News on

    Every once in a while I check if “but does it float” has a new entry. The site stands
    out, among many visually oriented sites, in showing intriguing images lead by
    brief sentences. The text often act as a springboard to lift you up where the images
    are displayed or they can playfully set the rhythm to the visual composition that
    follows. The curators of the site, Folkert Gorter and Atley G. Kasky, know how to
    put up great shows tastefully, beautifully and effectively. Here are some examples.

    Here is what they did with my work (below). Somehow the vastness of the text at
    the beginning takes you to a place where you can let your imagination fly. It’s so
    clever and effective.

  • “My work in an art text book?”

    In News on

    A few years ago I had a great experience in working with people at the
    Swarthmore College, PA for their gallery show.  At the opening I met one of the
    art professors, Michael Cothren, who was working on a college art text book
    called “ART A Brief History”.  He was very generous in complimenting my work
    and I had a lot of fun talking to him.  A few weeks later, he emailed me saying that
    he was thinking about putting my work in the upcoming edition of the text book.
    Of course I didn’t have any problem with it…

    An image from the Swarthmore College show.  The full photo set can be seen at "PHOTOS" at the main part of the site.An image from the Swarthmore College show. The full photo set can be seen at “PHOTOS” at the main part of the site.

    So I’ve been wondering if that will actually happen.  And last week, the book
    came in the mail.  In it, I do see a picture of my work and very nice descriptions of
    the work by professor Cothren.

    The page at AmazonAmazon‘s got it.

    The-page-

    It’s really exciting to reach out to people learning about art and to take
    a part in more fun in their lives.  As I wrote a few month ago, I myself
    got into art through community college education.

    Well, I know, it’s sort of weird and surreal.  Last time I felt like this
    was when my wife decided to go out with me ten years ago.  I was like,
    “wow, cute woman like that actually wants to be with me?”.  Good
    things do actually happen sometimes.
