Artwork by Artist Michael Rose , The Untitled Space Gallery, New York

“My work engages with memories, alienation, humor, and the variation and range of emotional experience. In this series, sense organs emerge from a particulate haze, prismatic and atmospheric. The form is clear at times; in other moments it dissolves into its context, defined only by the thinnest film of skin pressing against the surface. What emerges is a kind of tension between the simultaneous permeability and isolation of the self and the body. Painted rapidly with oil paint on panel, canvas, linen and polyester that is often left un-stretched, the creative process is plainly unconcealed; the marks left in the margins, the hand-cut edge and spontaneous peripheral forms between paintings are part of the composition. Paint and procedures are allowed to blur and layer, resulting in an image that hovers somewhere between memory and amalgamation.” – Michael Rose
