"Day and NIght" by Alexandra Rozenman is a 16 x 20 x 2 inch surreal and playful oil painting on linen from which a funny boy stairs at us in wonder. Behind him is a vast and open space: foggy and dreamy, in blues, greens and greys. It is about to rain. He carries two colorful buckets in his hands and something like a white ball under his right arm. Is it a full moon, we wonder? A whole flock of small birds flies out of his pocket while two fried eggs sunny side-up are sitting on a wooden stool in front of him. It feels as if the birds left him a few eggs for breakfast, but have to go now – into a faraway unknown land of fogs, rains and winds. It is probably late September. There will be day, there will be night, but we don’t always have to know what time it is. Here, in a foggy dream we can pick and choose or just forget and fly away into wet nothingness of early New England Fall. The painting is signed on the front and also the reverse. Alexandra Rozenman immigrated to America from the Soviet Union in 1989. Russian, European and American myths of national destiny and private identity take on a utopian dimension as she absorbs and expresses the psychology of otherness as fundamental aspects of her own identity. She wants her art to be like a well-worn military wool blanket that gives you warmth, love, and history. The artist states, "Whatever degree of abstraction defines my thinking and visual self-identification it has all to do with the search for my own image in a great existential sea of sweeping changes."
