About

"Floating Eggs" by Alexandra Rozenman is a 12 x 24 x 2.5 inch oil painting on canvas. In this mysterious and playful horizontal painting you can almost hear the sound of the splashing water, because we are obviously on the ship. Seascape behind the wooden floor is blue, dark and endless. An animal that looks more like a cat than a dog is sitting on the edge of the terrace staring at an oval of fried sunny side up eggs floating in the air above a blue striped beach towel in front of her. Do cats know how to swim? She has the ocean behind her or a way to escape through a tall staircase on the left of the terrace. Why is she so nervous? Is captain missing his breakfast? We don’t know and are staring in her bright green eyes looking for an answer. The painting is signed on the front and also on 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."
