About Mitchell Rosenzweig
Mitchell Rosenzweig develops relationships between color and depth, his process of addition and subtraction creating the unexpected. His recent paintings were achieved through long periods of experimentation, employing acrylic, oil, enamel, and spray paint and mixing them with billboard poster pieces, repurposed for their bold text and vibrant colors. He begins each work with a subconscious sketch that realizes itself through layers of drawing and painting. He often ends up with some form of chaos, which he then reigns in to a sense of resolution, a kind of messy harmony that captivates the viewer. The sense of synchronous disarray maintains attention, drawing closer and closer looks along with deeper and deeper introspection. His works have featured heavily and frequently across the northeastern United States in group and solo exhibitions. He was also a Curator at the Mai Kon Pan Museum in Thailand.

My current paintings were achieved through long periods of experimentation with various painting materials and applications. Acrylic, oil, enamel, and spray paint, are mixed with billboard poster pieces, to re-purpose their text and vibrant colors.
Primary focus is on the process of painting, developing color relationships, and depth. Paintings start with a basic subconscious sketch, by layering forms of color through drawing and painting, The process of addition and subtraction of colors and for mallows me to view the unexpected and work towards are solution.
