Illustration adjunct faculty Eddie del Rosario has works featured in “Narrations,” an exhibition opening tonight, January 17th, at Nancy Margolis Gallery here in New York City. Here’s an excerpt from the gallery’s press release:
The Nancy Margolis Gallery is to exhibit works on paper by seven artists who create visual stories pulled from the subconscious, observations of reality, personal symbolism, and fictional fantasies. The simple materials, graphite, paint, and paper require little preparation for the artist to get started. The seven artists in Narrations are gifted draftsmen/women, and the work shows exacting concentration in spite of the spontaneous nature of the medium. Be they light and funny, dark and frightening, the outcome is carefully drafted minimalist drawings of quirky, strange, ambiguous scenes and figures.
Edward del Rosario, a Brooklyn based artist who received his M.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design, is known for his paintings featuring miniature people engaging in full-size power struggles. Rosario’s work displays the absurd games people are willing to play to obtain and preserve power within cultural clashes. Del Rosario received a 2007 MacDowell Fellowship, and his work can be seen in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
