Deciding, Abstract painting, Oil and Graphite on Panel, Black, off white, green



Deciding by Rose Umerlik is an abstract painting, Oil and Graphite on wood panel, 26 x 42. According to Umerlik: “This piece is about being pulled in many different directions by an important decision. While most of my work delves into the complexities that exist between multiple people, sometimes my work focuses on the individual experience while navigating relationships. Hence, this piece focuses on an individual that is playing out the many different avenues or possibilities that may result from a specific decision. The line in the center of the painting represents the core of the person, holding strong and steady. From this core, multiple shapes flank off, reach out, and test the outlying space, as a way of exploring all the different outcomes. These shapes that emanate from the core loosely resemble my “head” shapes because this piece is about thinking..” Rose Umerlik extracts the intangible emotional moments that live in our collective human psyche and interprets them abstractly through form, line and color so that they may also exist outside of ourselves. In recent years, Umerlik has shown in seven solo exhibitions and innumerable group shows domestically and internationally, published a book of work titled Intimacy of Forms, received notable reviews in such publications as Art New England, and been awarded the Clowes Award by the Vermont Studio Center. The most affecting experience of Umerlik’s career to date has been her two-month stay in the Takt Kunstprojektraum Artist Residency in Berlin, Germany. She has recently been named a 2018 Vermont Artist to Watch. She currently lives and works in Vermont and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University. She has been exhibiting her work since 2005
