MOCRA’s exhibition James Rosen: The Artist and the Capable Observer, was reviewed in the Sunday, October17, 2010, edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Reviewer Sarah Bryan Miller notes the “mysterious and lingering” effect of Rosen’s wax and oil/wax emulsion paintings. She also touches on the central implication of the exhibition’s title: “James Rosen’s paintings make demands on the observer’s time: time of contemplation, time for consideration, time for appreciation.”
We hope that you will take the time to read the review, and to visit the exhibition.
