Joseph Rozman
'Girl with Sun, Bicycle and Car' original watercolor signed by Joseph Rozman

1966

$12,250

About

The present painting is an excellent example of Joseph Rozman's pictographic style. The composition is dominated by abstracted vignettes: A fashionable woman beneath the sun, a car, a suburban house, flower gardens, a bicycle, the American flag – all arranged like Egyptian hieroglyphs to evoke linguistic meaning. At the same time, however, these subjects acknowledge the Pop concerns of the 1960s by looking to contemporary life and symbols. 18.75 x 28.75 inches, artwork 29.5 x 39.25 inches, frame Signed and dated in pencil, lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting; housed in a gold gilded frame. Artwork in overall excellent condition; some planar distortion to watercolor paper; some scratches to frame. Joseph Rozman (b. 1944, Milwaukee, WI) was the first artist to have a solo exhibition at the David Barnett Gallery in 1967, with additional exhibitions in 1969 and 1971. Rozman received his BFA and MFA from UW-Milwaukee by 1969, and would later become a Professor at Mount Mary College. His style is a spontaneous merging of ancient art with Modernist concerns: like Paul Klee and Adolph Gottlieb, his compositions are dominated by pictographs and symbols, drawing influence from Ancient Egyptian styles and prehistoric rock art. His approach to painting likewise falls in the legacy of Abstract Expressionism, with his free experimentation with varied materials and processes, and his delight in color and texture. Caring the credo of "Art is Fun" Rozman's playful gestures recur in his richly diverse works.
